IconDeveloper 2.0 released

Article posted on 3/17/2008

Windows Vista introduced a whole new icon format based on 256-256 sized icons.  Stardock IconDeveloper 2.0 is a complete rewrite of the popular icon creation utility. Designed to make manipulating batches of icons a snap, IconDeveloper 2 can turn PNGs and other types of files into icons easily as well as take existing icons and make them Vista-ready.

For those of you running Windows Vista, you probably have already seen programs that look odd on your desktop due to them not supporting high resolution icons (Vista will place a 48x48 icon insize of a 256x256 box on the desktop).  With IconDeveloper, users can quickly edit those icons and create 256x256 icons relatively easily.  The ObjectDock gallery on already contains high resolution PNGs for nearly every program imagineably. Combined with IconDeveloper, users can now make their desktops spectacular.

IconDeveloper is a free download. An enhanced version supports additional file types.  IconDeveloper is part of Object Desktop presently (it will become part of Object Desktop Ultimate next month).
