Can any1 tell me about any free icon creating s/w?? and from where to dload the same??
im sorry i dunno of any free ones
the better ones (shareware) are stardocks' icon developer
and microangelo which is very old. . i wonder what happened to it
anyways then theres axialis icon workshop to convert png's to ico's
hey raven, i got aston and wat i see is when i take my mouse pointer to any icon it changes like its animated. it looks good and the format of the icon was png or something of that sort.
now how do i make those kind of icons tat would animate when clicked ???
I don't think there is a way to create animated icons for Windows... If there is any, I'd love to get my hands on it !!!
u dont have to search for the software dude!!
1. open ms paint
2. Press ctrl+E
3. set height and width 80 pixels
4. draw your own icon
5. save as *.ico
Nice tip but softwares like MicroAngelo are much better.
I dont know whether there is a way to create or not. but with aston when i move my mouse over it, the icon animates
I suppose this has been created so we should also be able to do so.
Will this create real iconz...........
I really doubt it..............
Yup, it sure creates REAL iconz But no one has yet given any info on animated iconz... I don't think th Windows shell allows it...
best so far is axialis icon workshop crack it buddy
@biplav.. thats what aston does ...
it probably has settings for it
afaik theres no way to create "animated icons"
and yeah completely forgot abt the ms paint trick
it definitely works and can be quite easier
well brother, it works, as far as i know.
the best thing about it is that you dont have to install a seperate software for creating icons!!
no way to create animated icons. huh? wonder how these programs do it.
Microangelo 5.5.9c is the best. SHAREWARE. search for it's full version through google you will get it.
