Chapter 10. Creating Icons and Mouse Poi... > Exploring Third-Party Icon Makers

Exploring Third-Party Icon Makers

Several icon-creation utilities are available on the Web as freeware, as shareware, and for purchase. These software packages enable you to draw an icon and then save it in the appropriate file format. Most icon-creation software also lets you create Windows mouse pointers (discussed later in this chapter).

Icon makers are useful because they provide a single tool that allows you to draw your icon and then save it as an icon file. Most icon makers also let you easily save a set of icons (different sizes or different icons) in a single file. Using an icon maker makes icon creation simple, particularly if you take a look at all the steps we went through creating icons as Microsoft suggests (refer to the section “The Basics of Icon Creation the Microsoft Way”).
