Iconographer

Version: 2.5 || Release Date: 2006-07-12 || License: Freeware App Owner: mingistech

Iconographer is a fully-featured icon editor. It allows you to both change the icons of items and to edit the icon resources used by various programs. Iconographer has been created from the ground up to deal with many icon formats, including: classic Mac OS (8-bit icons only), Mac OS 8.5+ (32-bit icons with 8-bit masks), Mac OS X (128 × 128 icons in .icns files), Windows and Windows XP (.ico files), and Mac OS X Server (48 × 48 icons in .tiff files).

Note from the developer:

"It was formerly $15 shareware. If you would like to use it and turn off the registration reminder, you can "register" it with the name "Iconographer is now free" and the registration code "HG066414" (if I can manage to build it again, I will look into removing the registration code entirely)."

OS X and OS 9.x downloads available on the homepage:http://www.mscape.com/

Worth it just for the way it makes it easy to get icons (with masks) and whole icon families onto and off of the clipboard. The actual graphical abilities of the app are weak, but team it up with Photoshop, and look out!

No 512×512 support yet. Please! I need my Iconographer on Leopard!

the best icon editor out there. it is in serious need of an update though... mihai where are you? anyone have good icon sites?

This is the only easy way I've found to make Mac and PC icons.
