The best image to icon conversion in the market ever , very simple , intuitive and effective with a stunning design and very simple user interface. Convert image to icon , folder or shape , this utility you do not think you need it until you use it for once . I use it all the time to distinguish my folders and change some applications icons . Very powerful and convenient, I also use it for work to clients and distinguish their folder on my mac , wonderful app from a great company. Give it a shot and I'm sure you will love it.

Very cool app, though you need to pay for the PRO Version for the additional functions. I use it frequently and with great results so I was willing to pay for the additional icon templates. Their website has the info if you wish to compare features.....

I tried to buy it but the website kept spinning without resolution. Their purchase system is apparently down. Hope my credit card wasn't charged. Or else.

Unfortunately this program no longer works with Yosemite. Like so many other things. Apple just keep on sucking the fun out of everything with each new operating system. My computer is fast becoming just a giant iPhone.

Have been using this app for years for its simplicity and focus on only one functionality. Though old, still work out of box on Mac 10.8.5.

1. When feeder with an icns file, it doesn't seem to respect any other icon sizes contained in that icns. It just scales down the biggest one it finds. 2. The resulting icons are slightly brighter that the original image/icon.

An hour of investigating and experimenting led me a pleasing icon creation scenario: 1. Create a multi-layer 512 x 512 image in Pixelmator. 2. Save the image as a PNG file. 3. Drop the PNG file onto Img2icns (lite, freeware). 4. Click the ICNS button in Img2icns. Although this may be more steps than a self-contained icon editor, I found creating the icon image in a full-featured image editor beats the limited imaging editing in most/all icon editors. The unconventional Img2icns user interface is not to my taste, resulting in a 1 star deduction in my overall rating. (I'd have deducted just a half-star if that were possible.)

This doesn't offer any more than the free Icon Composer that comes with the developer tools. Also, version 0.51 -> 1.0 seems to have bloated significantly: 0.51: 400k Icon composer: 800k 1.0: 6Mb! It would be good if it did something more powerful like being able to badge folders quickly and easily in a variety of styles, but not even the paid version can do that.

Great app, one limitation: the icons in the list view don't match the standard Leopard list view folders. I am using a standard Leopard folder PSD template, and all looks great except list view/column view/sidebar icons.

Fed it a 512 px png file created in illustrator with transparency, it created a 512 px icon with smaller sizes embedded in it. exactly what i wanted (well, except that it skipped the 48 px size for some odd reason, but got the rest).
