Icon Editing Software Reviews

Icon Editor Software ReviewIcon editing software is software for creating and editing computer icons. Icon editors usually contain a rudimentary raster image editor capable of modifying images of an icon pixel by pixel, by using simple drawing tools, or by applying simple image filters. Professional icon designers seldom modify icons inside an icon editor and use a more advanced drawing or 3D modeling application instead. The main function performed by an icon editor is generation of icons from images. An icon editor resamples a source image to the resolution and color depth required for an icon. Some icon editors can apply preconfigured effects on the generated images during the conversion. Effects include softening, sharpening, edge enhancement, or drop shadow effect.
