Icon Empire announces the release of Icon Craft 4.0, a versatile toolkit for creating and editing all kinds of graphics required in the software development cycle.
Compatible with all versions of the Windows OS, including Windows Vista, the application allows developers to design professional-quality icons, static or animated mouse pointers and software and web interface elements – all in one easy-to-learn and use program environment.
Icon Craft 4.0 is a powerful utility for creating and editing icons and cursors in standard and custom sizes in color depths ranging up to 32-bit True Color. Developers can give their graphics an added gloss with numerous visual effects, ranging from semi-transparency to drop shadows. In addition to graphics design, the program allows for extracting and modifying standard icons or cursors stored in Windows executables, libraries and cursor files, and downloading icons from network locations.
Besides icon/cursor design and management capabilities, Icon Craft enables developers to create multilayer images that can be used as interface items. A sophisticated collection of effects is included to help breathe life into the software design. Along with gradient and chess fill effects, dozens of other stylistic options include drop shadow, opacity, smoothing, negative, grayscale, colorize, rotate, and more.
This program is aimed at providing developers with all the necessary tools for software design development. At IconEmpire.com you will find such handy tools as ICL-Icon Extractor, Perfect Icon, and Icon Craft, a big icon collection, links to icon and logo design companies, FAQ and articles on design – all in one place!
Icon Craft 4.0 runs under Windows 95/98/ME/2000/NT/XP/2003 and costs $39.95 (USD) for a single-user license. Registered customers are entitled to free updates and lifetime technical support.
