Unknown author (2007-08-24 00:00:00):

please people, if you don't have any useful or constructive comment that would really help develop this site, and all you say is that you were not satisfied (sour graping: because you just don't have an idea and you are too lazy), just find another site and don't leave a comment at all. it's just useless and more dumb.

Unknown author (2007-11-09 00:00:00):

above: your comment was as useless as mine.

rewardrebel (2008-01-05 00:00:00):

I'd not considered aspects of icon creation like speed of recognition, so have picked up some important and helpful information here. Thanks.

Unknown author (2008-01-06 00:00:00):

Unknown author (2008-01-14 00:00:00):

To the "unkown author" please write more comments explaining how smart you and your Mom are. I have used your comments as examples in my lessons, please feel free to continue using the "text messaging" style of writing (foul as it may be), or, you may ask someone smart to explain in simple terms the meaning of "you catch more bees with honey" it might be useful for you to incorporate it's use in future requests of assistance. Strike the last sentance and continue on your quest for a "Simple Solution", many, if not most will understand your "special" needs! However if you were writing from a viewpoint of satyr, you have given us a chuckle, THANKS, if not God help us if you represent a "Smart young person".

Vlasta (2010-12-01 15:50:16):

In what sense "garbage"?

Unknown author (2011-01-13 21:52:48):

Nice guide. I create it in PNG and then use www.pngtoico.com to convert it into the ICO format. Much less hassle.

Vlasta (2011-01-14 10:52:28):

If you want a web service, there is a more powerful one here: image-to-icon.

Unknown author (2011-01-19 04:22:00):

yeah this software is better to use like a Adobe Fireworks knock off
Use www.pngtoico.com worked for me alot faster :-)

Unknown author (2011-02-10 14:27:06):

Unknown author (2012-05-05 18:21:43):

Can you make round icons?

Unknown author (2012-07-10 20:53:38):

I don't think you can make round icons, but you could make an icon of a circle and then have the outside of the circle transparent. It wouldn't technically be a round icon, but it would look like it.

Unknown author (2012-07-13 13:37:09):

I don't Like It |-)

Unknown author (2012-12-06 12:14:25):

want to make icons without use of software in win7

Unknown author (2013-01-03 20:37:10):

how about 32-bit (and no alpha channel) icon for VB and other?

Unknown author (2013-04-20 16:26:56):

how can a no computer guy learn to do this on his own

Unknown author (2013-05-02 14:36:26):

I used with a JPG but it turned in a file without extension.... so no .ico created.... did not work. :-( :-( :-( :-(

Vlasta (2013-05-02 14:40:19):

What tool did you use?

belkit (2013-05-30 04:59:58):

The way I worked out to do it, was I remove the background so that its transparent using either a magic wand or a path selector. Then using bevel or outline, create a black border or shadow around the subject.

Unknown author (2013-07-02 15:57:24):


Unknown author (2013-07-26 03:25:31):

i cant figure out how to do it someone :-( :-( :-( :-(

Unknown author (2015-10-24 05:35:06):

I'm no computer nerd but surely there's a program that converts an image to an icon? Like a MKV - MP4 converter for video?

Unknown author (2016-02-24 03:00:36):

It's A So Good Tutorial, Thanks, :-D I Doesn't Can Speak English :-( , Sorry For The Ortography |-)

Unknown author (2016-02-28 18:45:14):

Maybe a lesson in how to build an image/icon from SCRATCH using you program. |-)
I need more info!

I want to make a simple icon (No Shadows, No Shading, 16X16 or 32X32) with a transparent back ground. Transparency is the main reason I need your program.

It is not clear to me how to use the layers and what to do with them.
After I made an image/icon with you program I tried to open the images in my browser but the images do not show a transparent background.
I have no way of testing to see is the background was transparent, why doesn't the program have a preview that shows the transparency?
It seem every developer makes adding transparency a big mystery and a difficult thing to do when it is not.
Your on line program has a good way to add transparency but it has no preview and limited to one size.

Vlasta (2016-02-28 20:46:33):

Transparent background is the default. If you create a new icon, it will start with a transparent background. How do you test the icon in the browser? Is it the fav-icon in the address bar? If you simply open an image in a tab, most browsers will ignore the transparency and add some kind of background.

(Is it an .ico file or do you use the term icon in more general sense and use .png files?)

Unknown author (2016-07-11 08:57:20):

When i tried to use my icon it just shows like an image of earth with a swirl or something next to it. how do i fix it?

ThuggzBunny (2017-05-19 09:59:57):

A big problem I keep having is once an image (say png) is converted to bmp it loses transparency. I have seen comments made on other forums where people are insisting that bitmap images can't have transparency. ;-) I know that's false because there are icons & things like bmp start orbs that have an alpha channel. Will Real World Icon Editor or the Online Icon Creator produce bmp icons that keep their transprency? Thank you for your time. :-)

avia (2018-11-11 04:46:12):

Problem on Windows 10: I made icons, changed them on my desktop through properties. I restarted the computer and they were gone, back to a generic folder. Only on one, when I selected 'previous version' was the new icon available. Please HELP! What am I doing wrong?

Unknown author (2019-12-13 09:48:25):


Nice application, online help could be more helpful though.... ;-)

Harryest Potter (2020-11-03 17:08:19):

I don't know how to create all t does is tell me about it I need to know where to go to create.
