  • Well... Still a way to go to reach the functionality of even an outdated version of IconFX. That's good to have an open source alternative that at least allows to do the bare minimum i.e. creating ico files. But AFAIK you can't do the following: - Create icon libraries. - Auto generate other icon size from one icon (goes with above functionality). - Do not embed a handy resource editor as in IcoFX. - Zoom in/out the image. The look and feel is rather outdated but that's secondary. All the fancy effects from IcoFX are useless if you ask me so this is only extra. I'd rather prepare the PNG files prior to import them. What is already in VIE is way enough should you wish to adjust the image a bit. So it is lacking a few functionalities but that is promising for the future. Keep up the good work. I will keep IcoFX until then.

  • 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!

  • It is very, very raw.

  • It's quite annoying to use. It lacks pretty basic features that you'd expect in any program since the 1990s: you apparently cannot save the file with another name (you can only overwrite the original file), you cannot drag files to open them, it doesn't have a "Recent files" list... Also, many toolbar buttons don't have any tooltip of help that informs about their purpose (except the most obvious ones). The program has not been updated since 2011 (despite what SourceForge claims), the domain is for sale... Honestly, I wouldn't recommend starting using it.

  • 16x16 editing is not working! This program is really annoying!

  • 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.

  • It could be a great tool, but has no help, no documentation, no english version, nothing.

  • I like your project very much, if you need translating help (I'm experienced) feel free to contact me at SourceForge.

  • At last I can create icons. Does exactly what I need, German language is a a non-problem.

  • Can't recommend it one way or another until it is available in English.
