A suggestion

I’d like to see a little more versatility in the basic folder adjustment for adding a picture on top of a folder. For example currently you can place a photo on top of a folder. Folder is in the shape of a horizontal box. Half of all images are portraits right? Let’s make a mask that you can adjust the size of so the picture doesn’t incorporate the whole folder, but a portion of it so you can still see the edges of the folder being whatever color you want (which is possible with your program thank you). I know you can make the photo be horizontal or anywhere on the folder icon, but if there is a window (a mask) you can see the folder color and see a nice horizontal box that would show the photo you chose as opposed to having a vertical photo just sitting with a large area of the folder ont he right and left side. I don’t know if I made myself clear. I wish I could upload an image so you see what I used to do with my folders manually, but got bored and found your awesome program.

Great, but only if you buy

So I’ve been using another application for years and happened upon this one while looking to update my old one. I figured I’d give it a try and was really impressed by how it works. It was easy to load my image. It was REALLY neat to see all the options I had. I clicked on the one that would work the best for my folder view and bam — TO USE, PLEASE PURCHASE PRO VERSION (or something like that). That’s when I noticed that MOST of the folder options had little locks by them. Fine, we have free & not free. I’m fine with that. EXCEPT, most of them weren’t free, and MOST of the free ones were towards the bottom of the long list. There were a few sprinkled here and there. As far as I can see, there’s no way to remove the paid ones. There’s no way to organize them free to be on the top of the list. So basically every single time I need to make a preview icon, I’ll have to scroll forever just to find the one I want to use. Sorry, but this is meant to make my work flow easier, and the added annoyance of scrolling through itty-bitty previews is just not something I’m good with. I’ll stick to my free user-friendly app Img2Icns. Thanks anyways.

Simple and intuitive...

I had this app back when it’s logo was a gecko and hadn’t used it in awhile. Just downloaded this version and am pleased that it is still a classic example of a great “speciality” app! It’s purpose is focused, it’s simple and intuitive to use, and it gives you a predictable end product that is both pleasing to the eye and of practical value.
My only mild negative would be that I think it’s “free” version is underpriced for such a great product, but it’s template and export options are a bit pricey for the additional functionality. If the “unlocks” were more around $5 for everything, I would have probably purchased them. But make no mistake, this is a well designed piece of software that can make you feel like an artist. Using it makes me happy. I can’t say that about all my computer experiences!
