What's New in Version 2.9
● Fixed a minor bug preventing SVG images from being scaled up
Poor image quality of created icons.
The interface and usability of the program are top notch and everything seemed great until I compared the image quality of the original icon or .PNG with the outputted content.
As other reviewers have noted there is a significant degradation in the color of icons created by this program. The satuation and contrast are bumped way down and the colors are washed out and muted compared to the original image quality. As another reviewer has noted, this is not the case when using their online tool where the output looks identical to the input.
Just to be sure about the quality issue I tried every configuration along with every possible file format I could throw at it and everythng resulted in the same ruined icons. Too bad, because this program otherwise functions very fast and effieicently.
If you’re just looking for fast and easy creation many icons from PNGs and aren’t concerned about quality than this may be acceptiable, but otherwise I HIGHLY recommend Icon Slate which I have bought and verified to produce icons with spot on image quality and is very simple to use. It requires a few more mouse clicks to create new icons than this program but the options are better and the GUI is more refined and more importantly, the icons look right!
Works Great and does NOT upload your icons anywhere.
I was initialy concerned about the application uploading icons to the developers website as cited by another reviewer. privacy issues aside, I wanted to use this app when not connected to the internet, or when behind a restrictive outbound firewall. When you first open the app, it does try to connect to the developers website only to check your version against the current version (to alert you if there is an update available). It does NOT upload your icons to any external server for conversion. I’ve used the app on a series of icons and it converted them flawlessly.
Fantastic humble app, does what it does
I had great fun designing and making my own desktop icons.
Great thanks to this app! It does what it does, convert any pic
files I have to either mac or win icons.
Lovin it! Thanks to the programmer!
