I just bought IcoFX ($45 after finding a $5 off coupon) in
order to create some simple Windows icons. So far I'm really impressed with it;
it is a huge time saver.
Here's what I did:
- I opened Inkscape (free vector art program) and
created a simple PNG file:
- Opened this file in GIMP to add some space around
- Opened the PNG in IcoFX, and chose Create an icon from the image (it prompts you):
IcoFX automatically creates the multi-size icons:
- Choose File -> Save As, and now you have a multi-size icon that you can
use for Windows applications.
Here's what the icon looks like in my (Win 7) taskbar:
