Rich-featured software that allows you to create, edit, and convert icons for Windows, Macintosh, iPhone, and Android, while offering support for advanced editing parameters
Axialis IconWorkshop is a professional software application whose purpose is to help you create, edit, and convert icons.
The layout may seem a bit overwhelming at a first glance but this is only because the utility comes packed with many dedicated parameters. You can rely on the help manual for finding out additional information about each feature and use the built-in wizard for configuring the process step-by-step.
Axialis IconWorkshop gives you the possibility to create a new icon project for Windows, Macintosh, iPhone, or Android, or generate a single bitmap containing multiple images with the same format used for toolbars.
What’s more, you are allowed to perform search operations, use the Librarian for uploading preset images in your projects, undo or redo your actions, create a list with your favorite items, carry out basic editing operations (cut, copy, paste, delete), and copy the current item to the clipboard.
The tool lets you adjust the contrast, hue, saturation, and brightness, adjust the opacity, apply grayscale and shadow effects, zoom in or out, use hotkeys, as well as make use of several filters, such as smooth, blur, sharpen, contour, emboss, and others.
You can also use a color picker (and view the RGB values), color replacer, pencil, and brush, fill in the desired area with a custom color, embed lines, rectangles, and ellipses, flip or rate the icon to different angles, and embed user-defined text messages.
You can customize the icons for Windows Vista’s system settings by opting for normal or large icons, adjusting the space between icons, and displaying icons using 256 or true color. Additionally, you can customize any hard disk folder (or subdirectory) with the icon of your choice, change the icons for the Start Menu, desktop, and other options.
All in all, Axialis IconWorkshop comes bundled with a wide range of parameters for helping you tweak your icons in detail, and is suitable especially for experienced users.
