Icons are the road signs of the computer desktop, helping computer users navigate an often-confusing maze of applications and shortcuts. This program is aimed at helping designers create graceful icons, but it falls short of rivals in several respects. The interface and toolbox look much like the Paint program that is included with Windows, offering only basic tools such as pen, fill, brush, and text, along with a few effects.
The program allows users to convert image files into the ICO format, but can't extract images from executable files as do other programs of this type. On the whole, ZNsoft Icon Maker provides a foundation for making well-designed icons, but lacks the broader feature set most professionals will require.
