Microsoft Office 2007 icons
Microsoft Office 2007 icons is a collection of high quality images that depicts the icons used by the files and the applications included in the Microsoft Office 2007 suite. You can use these images in order to create your own icons for related documents.
The package includes more than seventy high quality images captured in PNG format. Both the icon size and the file format are suitable for transferring the images over the Internet and using them for websites.
It is a useful tool for the programmers that need to create icons inspired from the Office programs and for the web developers that create websites with Office-related themes. The PNG format is suitable for both purposes since it uses a palette based algorithm to compress the data while maintaining a small footprint.
All the items from the package have a transparent background which makes it easier to blend in with the content of a document or a webpage. The choice to use the PNG format was based on the fact that it supports alpha channel transparency which improves the GIF transparency model.
Unfortunately, not all the programs from the suite are represented in the collections since there are no icons extracted from Visio, Project or SharePoint. To make up for this downside, the most popular applications such as Excel and Word are represented with more than ten images.
The Microsoft Office 2007 icons pack is a useful resource for the users that need to insert Office-related items in their projects.
