Whether personalizing your desktop or giving yourself a new IM image, turning ordinary images into icons is an ever-popular task. This no-nonsense utility does just that, taking digital photos or images from any of the most popular graphics formats and turning them into icons. One click allows users to create an entire standard set--from 8x8 to 64x64 pixels--with transparent color. The program also has a feature for cutting blank elements and shaping the icon to the core contents of the picture, but in our tests we found this feature to work imperfectly at best. Moreover, we're afraid its price tag may turn off ordinary computer users looking for what is ultimately a niche utility, while professional designers will prefer a full-blown graphics package. Nevertheless, amateur icon makers may well want to give this a try.
