Free Icon Maker
Free Icon Maker is a user-friendly and effective piece of software developed to help you design your own application or website icons, enabling you to draw them pixel by pixel from scratch or build them upon existing PNG images.
Clean-cut and accessible usage
Following a fairly straightforward installation, with no noteworthy events, you can launch the program and begin working with it immediately, its evident simplicity making it easy to handle even by less knowledgeable individuals.
Free Icon Maker’s straightforward and intuitive user interface seems to address novices in particular, judging by the minimalistic look and the limited number of functions and features.
Swiftly design your own website or app icons
To get started, you can press the ‘Create New Ico’ button, which will prompt you to select the preferred size in pixels. You can choose from a series of predefined dimensions (10 x 10, 32 x 32, 256 x 256 pixels, and others) or you can enter custom width and height values. At the same time, Free Icon Maker allows you to open an existing ICO file and further adjust it.
The tools you can work with are the ‘Pen’, ‘Color Picker’ and ‘Eraser’, each component’s size being adjustable, between one and five pixels. Since an icon is made up of multiple layers, of different sizes or even different appearance, in the eponymous panel, you can add or remove images from your ICO.
The ’Colors’ section allows you to create your own color combinations, either by using the ‘Picker’ or by entering the preferred RGB values in the appropriate boxes. When complete, you can save your icon to ICO format, but also CPL, DLL, EXE, ICL, OCX or SRC, depending on your needs.
A handy ICO builder
To conclude, Free Icon Maker is a simple and easy to understand utility which aims to assist you in coming up with your own icon designs, letting you create the images from zero and save them to multiple different formats.
