iIco – added 9/4/2005

iIco is an extremely versatile icon editor for Windows. It is capable of handling both icon and cursor files, plus the semitransparent icons in Windows XP. It can accept input from a wide variety of formats, converting them smoothly to icon size with very little loss of clarity. Many Mintra Systems product icons (including the one for iICO) were made using this program. This is in our opinion one of the best (and certainly the best you can get for free) icon editors currently available on the internet.
