Create High Color Depth Icons for Windows XP!
Aha-Soft announced today the release of ArtIcons Pro 3.0. This powerful graphics utility allows professional and amateur graphic artists alike to create and edit icon images and manage icon files and libraries with perfect ease. It is the best tool for creating buttons, tiny icons or editing smaller graphics. This latest release supports the creation of smooth high color depth Windows XP icons.
Designed specifically for effective icon creation and management, ArtIcons offers production features that can't be found in standard graphics applications. For one, busy artists can import icons directly from image and library files, cursor files and even executables. This makes it ever so easy to create new icons from existing material without creating them from scratch. If you do need to create a new icon, choose from the standard 32x32 or 48x48 icon sizes or specify custom sizes with color depth of up 16 Million Colors (True Color). With the new support for creating Windows XP icons, you get to make 32-bit icons with 8-bit alpha-channels.
ArtIcons comes with all the essential tools that let you edit and tweak the icon you want to perfection. Painting tools include spray can, pencil, brush, flood fill, text and line tools. Modifiers can also be used to apply color gradients, chess fills and more.
For Windows XP icons, you get to add cool drop shadow and smooth effects. ArtIcons also supports the import and export of multiple file types, including .ico, .ani, .cur, .wmf, .bmp, .jpg, .gif, .psd, .wbmp, and .png.
Finding and managing your icon libraries is a breeze with ArtIcon's useful icon scanning. You get to scan files and folders for icons, delete duplicate icons and arrange icons into libraries using drag and drop. Say goodbye to headaches or wasted time looking for lost icons.
ArtIcons Pro is the first icon editing software that supports the new icon format used in Windows XP (32-bit icons with 8-bit alpha-channel). Icons in Windows XP have smooth edges that blend into any surface, drop shadow and other effects. Users of ArtIcons Pro can also customize their Windows Desktop icons. Other enhancements includes support for .psd (Adobe PhotoShop
native format), new Hot Keys and an improved program interface.
