Make and Customize Your Own XP Icons

Aha-Soft Announces the Release of IconXP 1.10

Make and Customize Your Own XP Icons

May 15, 2002 - AhaSoft's latest Icon Editor is specially designed for easy creation of slick and trendy Windows XP icons. IconXP 1.10 allows you to create smooth icons for Windows XP. In compliance with the new icon format introduced by Windows XP (32bit color with 8 bit alpha channel), IconXP enables you to create icons that contain a smooth edge over any background.

Other visual effects that are popular and prominent with Windows XP icons today include drop shadow, gradient, light source from a certain angle, soft and slightly rounded edges, and a 3D outlook. Version 1.10 offers several new functions to make better use of opacity and transparency, including the ability to capture transparency when moving or copying images. You can use RGB lock mode, which allows you to modify a pixel's transparency while keeping their color. Similarly, IconXP's transparency lock mode lets you alter a pixel's color while freezing its transparency.

Creating unique XP icons could be a daunting task without the right tools. IconXP helps graphic designers and amateurs to create Windows XP icons easily.

How Does IconXP Do It?
IconXP is fundamentally an icon editor. All of its functions are designed specially to create icons, unlike other graphics applications that are not suited for icon creation. In IconXP, you'll find a full-featured editor for creating attractive icon files. You can start from scratch, or simply import multiple standard image files (BMP, JPEG, etc.) and convert them into an icon format.

IconXP allows users to easily create icons that mirrors Windows XP Icons. For example, IconXP lets you choose the size of your new icon, the color depth, and the effects that you want your icon to have, all with a click of a button. You can easily create and modify XP icons with drop shadow, smooth, rotate, grayscale, colorize, and roll and mirror effects to create that fun, dynamic, and modern look. At the same time, you can paint images with gradient and chess fills for dimension and a rich outlook. You can save to disk, import/export icon images to ICO, BMP, JPEG, CUR, PNG, ANI, GIF, WMF and Adobe Photoshop PSD files.

With all these built-in characteristics, both professional and amateur graphic artists alike can create and edit icon images with perfect ease and flexibility.
