It's a basic editor but I was easily able to copy some bitmaps over, size them, apply some transparency, and save them for some functional icons. If you have used microsoft paint then you don't even need a help file, it is all intuitive!
Reliable and runs smoothly
Not bad at all for a free program. I was ablle to take a picture from the internet downscale it to a 32x32 256 colors and the result was quite acceptable.
Does what is says it will do. Translations from German to English are certainly close enough. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium. Simple to install. Simple and intuitive to use.
Interesting tool (now available in English language too). The extraction of icons works, but not with every type of executable. However, useful.
