This is a fairly complete set of 25 cursors designed to be easy to spot on any background. They're all animated, in rainbow colors, most with outlines of black and white.

Standard Windows pointers are tiny and easy to lose on a 1600x1200 monitor, and standard "large" Windows pointers are ugly. This is the first time I've created mouse pointers. I included some of my earlier versions as alternates. "Alternates" are not quite as highly visible, except for the "busy" cursor.

When Microsoft decided 32x32 was a good maximum size for cursors, and made their standard cursors smaller than maximum, screen resolutions were lower, and they were big enough. Not any more.

I wanted to share this set online for others with high screen resolutions who have the same problem I did, and these may also be useful for people with vision problems. Also to thank RealWorld Graphics for providing this nice free editor -- I didn't want to buy one, when I only intended to make this one set.

Update 1: Added 04c (busy) with semi-transparent grey in empty parts of the hourglass instead of completely transparent.

Update 2: Added 03a (work background) with semi-transparent fill in hourglass, like 04c.

Thank you, RealWorld! Hope somebody finds these useful.

I've been using these for a couple of years. Have vision issues and they helped a lot. Now have two really large monitors. Would there be a way to make these cursors even bigger?

These are GREAT!
I'm running a 37" ultra-wide screen monitor (21:9) at 3840 X 1600. I thought 37" would be large enough for my slowly fading eyes. But, I guess their going quicker that I thought. I'm ALWAYS hunting for my cursor, especially on web pages or when I have a bunch of things open.
Thanks for such a great set! :-)
