Weekend Widget: IcoFX

April 25, 2009

I’ve suggested a number of icon editors in previous posts. Of course this is because most graphic tools give us the ability to create the artwork for the icon, but the export filters don’t allow those files to be exported in the correct format.

Just a couple of days ago I had the need to create a “favicon” file for a Web site. I had the graphic already done in Corel PHOTO-PAINT and simply needed to make an icon file. So I saved it as a PNG file and opened it in the freeware IcoFX. Once open, I made a few minor changes and saved as the icon file I needed.

While you may not have a need to create icons on a regular basis, you’ll probably need to do so at some point in time. One of the many icon editors I’ve suggested, may do exactly what you need.
