When developing an application and you are getting ready to release it to a large audience, you need to make sure that you have as few bugs as possible, but also that your icon is both appealing and relevant.
QuickIcons is one of the applications you can rely on in order to make sure your icons are as high-quality as your developed software, regardless of the OS it is meant to run on.
Drag and drop images, then turn them into icons
The graphic user interface of the application is highly intuitive and you only need to drag and drop your source image onto the main window of the app.
It needs to be mentioned that although the ideal size is 1024x1024, you can also load graphics of other dimensions, yet they will be resized accordingly (without keeping the aspect ratio).
Add effects to your icons and preview them in real-time
The cool part of QuickIcons is that you get to enhance your newly-created icons with various types of effects, depending on your preferences.
More precisely, you can add a ‘Lite’ or a ‘Free’ tag to your icon, as well as some visual effects that make the outcome look sophisticated and elegant. As soon as you select an effect, you can preview the change in real-time, so you can quickly decide if you want to keep it on or not.
Design icons for iOS, BlackBerry, Mac OS X, Windows Phone or Android
After you experimented with all the effects and combined them to your liking, you can proceed to the next step, that of saving the resulting files to your computer.
QuickIcons enables you to export your icons to specific formats depending on the platform you want your software to run on, be it iOS, Mac OS X, Android, Windows, Windows Phone or BlackBerry. It goes without saying that you can choose all of these options at the same time, and you will end up with a folder filled with numerous icons compatible with certain operating systems.
