IconEdit is a Java 1.4 graphical (GUI) application to edit icon files (*.ICO) for Windows. An icon file can contain more than one image, in more than one size.
Supported sizes are from 8x8 to 255x255 Pixels, with standard sizes of 16x16, 24x24, 32x32, 48x48, and 64x64 pixels.
All icons are square. Colors may be 4-bit (16 colors), 8-bit (256 colors), or 24-bit (millions). For 4-bit color, only the standard Windows color palette is used, although other palettes will be read and converted. For 8-bit color, only the standard 216 "web safe" colors are used.
Other palettes will be read and converted. There are no restrictions on 24-bit colors; all RGB (red-green-blue) values are accepted. Pixels may be transparent and let the background show through.
Macintosh and Linux users should note that the FAVICON.ICO files used to bookmark web pages can be created with this program, because they are in fact Windows icons.
How To Use: Unpack the archive, open a Terminal, in the opened Terminal navigate to the unpacked files and then run the app with the following command: "java IconEdit1" (without the quotes).
NOTE: IconEdit is free for personal use. Please read the PDF documentation included in the ZIP file.
