IconBuilder is a filter for use with Adobe Photoshop or Fireworks that makes creating icons for either the Macintosh or Windows operating systems a snap. IconBuilder has been enhanced for increased compatibility with Photoshop / Fireworks CS3 and Mac OS X. Compatible with Adobe CS3 and Intel Macs IconBuilder is compatible for use with Adobe's new Creative Suite 3, specifically Adobe Photoshop CS3 and Fireworks CS3. The filter is also optmized for use with Apple's powerful Intel based Macintosh computers running Mac OS X 10.4+. Build Icons for Windows Vista IconBuilder 8 now supports the creation of Vista-ready ICO files with 256x256 resources, as well as larger icons for Mac OS X and multi-resolution TIFFs. Check out this quick tutorial to see how easy it is to create your first Vista icon. See the "New Features" PDF in the IconBuilder download for more information. Create Icons of Any Size IconBuilder supports the creation of icon sizes up to 1024 x 1024 for both the Mac and Windows operating systems. Additionally, non-Mac resources are not limited to being square in proportion. Create a 64x32, a 10x200, or anything in between - whatever your project calls for. Quickly Save in Multiple Formats Build Macintosh custom icons, Windows ICO, ICNS, BMP, PNG, GIF, and TIFF files with a single save operation. IconBuilder is flexible, so any combination of file formats can be specified in the save dialog. Use Layout Grids and Presets Utilize the PSD grid files that come with the filter or create your own grids to use as templates to place, size, and edit artwork. Each provided grid file corresponds to a Preset in the filter that IconBuilder uses to locate the artwork on the layer and import it into the filter. Plus you can create and save your own IconBuilder Presets to go with any custom icon grids that you make. New Verification Tools See resource information and warnings for each file format prior to saving, so you can catch problems early. Feature List
