Icon Editing

Finally nearing the release of the app I’ve been working on for a little while now, and we near the final polishing points – Icons etc and a problem with the VS2008 icon editor… The problem being that VS2008 seems to have settings of 4bit icons only…

To the rescue comes Paint.NET and the Icon/Cursor Plug-in (both FREE).. This allows you to edit icon files properly, save in 32bit up to 256x256 (which is probably gonna be big enough :))

It’s pretty simple to use – to the effect that I managed to create this awesome mouse pointer in less than 10 seconds (I know – surprising eh? looks like it would’ve taken hours!) spiffy pointer
