SoftOrbits Icon Maker

Create, modify and generate application icons with SoftOrbits Icon Maker! Offering everything you need to design, edit and convert small graphics, SoftOrbits Icon Maker Software is a must-have tool for any application developer. Even if you can't draw, the tool will help you produce great looking icons out of any picture, automatically applying effects to create icons with normal, highlighted, active and disabled look.

Create Icons for Windows, Android and iOS Applications

No two platforms are the same. Windows, OS X, Android, iOS and many other platforms use icons developed to their very own specifications. Did you know about 32-bit, 256x256 pixel icons in PNG format used throughout Windows 7 and 8? Are you aware of HD icons sized up to 1024x1024 pixels used in Mac OS X? Do you know the difference between iOS and Android icons?

Whether you are developing a desktop or mobile application, SoftOrbits Icon Maker will help you produce icons conforming to all the requirements of your target system. With SoftOrbits Icon Maker you don't have to remember the difference between iPhone icons and icons used in Android apps or bother about the different formats and sizes of icons used in Windows and Mac OS applications.

Comprehensive Icon Editing

SoftOrbits Icon Maker comes with some of the most comprehensive graphic editing features you could expect from an icon editor. Crop, rotation, drawing and pixel-level editing tools are all available to enable you create some of the best looking icons.

Stunning Special Effects

With SoftOrbits Icon Maker you can easily enhance your icons with a wide range of special effects. You can sharpen icons or add blur, change brightness and saturation, and use more than 20 other special effects available in the built-in editor. You can colorize icons, add shadows and glow, create active and disabled versions of icons, and use a wide range of geometric correction and distortion controls.

Automatic Icon Generation

With SoftOrbits Icon Maker you won't have to draw each individual icon size. Instead, you can use a large master image, automatically producing smaller versions of that image for the platform of your choice. Moreover, SoftOrbits Icon Maker is well aware of the different file formats required for the different platforms. As an example, Windows 7 makes use of the PNG format for high-resolution icons while still employing the older ICO format for smaller sizes. SoftOrbits Icon Maker will automatically produce images using the correct combination of resolution and file format.

Animated Icons and Cursors

SoftOrbits Icon Maker supports animated icons (.ani) and cursors (.cur), allowing you to edit multiple frames and generate animated sequences in no time.

Convert Images to Icons

Already have a high-resolution picture and just need to make icons? SoftOrbits Icon Maker will automatically produce icons in all sizes and formats required by the target system based on a single master image. Start with the largest size, and SoftOrbits Icon Maker will automatically downsample the master image to produce all the required icons for your selected platform in just a few clicks.

Automatic Icon Creation in Batch Mode

SoftOrbits Icon Maker comes with a powerful batch mode, allowing you to apply pre-defined effects and produce system icons for your target platform out of a batch of different images. The batch mode can do as much as taking a bunch of images and producing normal, disabled, active and highlighted versions of icons in all sizes and color depths required for your target platform.

Import Icon Libraries from ICL, DLL and EXE

SoftOrbits Icon Maker can import icons from a variety of icon libraries including ICL, DLL and EXE files, make icons out of JPEG, TIFF, GIF, BMP and PNG files, and import many other graphic formats.
