iconStiX for Mac

Combine and attach images to desktop items.

What is iconStiX for Mac

IconStiX is an easy-to-use, fundamental icon tool that allows users to combine and attach images to desktop items.

IconStiX is a simple program to combine images and attach composition as custom icon to desktop items such as folder. It is cooperated with the Finder's services, so that you can select "Open iconStiX" in the Finder's contextual menu to start the program.

It supports basic functions such as:

  • Adding multiple objects (image, shape, and text) and overviewing them in a table
  • Moving, resizing, rotating, skewing, coloring and shadowing objects
  • Attaching/removing custom icons
  • Saving documents (as template)
  • Exporting composition as images (ICNS, PNG, TIFF)
  • Keeping favorite icon images for quick access.

What's new in iconStiX

Version 4.1:
  • Bug fix and internal modifications (legacy replaced).
  • Option on the Frame panel to use shapes as clip: clip one or all objects drawn above; cf. the object table for the drawn order (the one at the bottom is drawn first).
  • Possible to paste image to the small icon image view; e.g. select one or more objects in the main view, select "Copy selected" under the edit menu, click the small view to activate, and paste (⌘V).

A clear leader in the sparse pack of icon adorning apps, not because it is the simplest (it is not) but because it is the most flexible. It pays to experiment and to make yourself familiar with all the features, including the ability to save favourites—and to transfer them to ColoFolXS, which can if required apply them via keyboard shortcuts. And who can resist a dev who implements a new feature less than 24 hours after you suggest it?

Like many others, I was looking for a replacement for Viou to create folder icons. Viou's user interface is a bit obtuse. But if you could figure it out, it worked great. And it was free. But it now no longer works on any recent OS. So I tried all that I could find, that allowed demo/eval. I liked this one the best. The user interface is much more intuitive. It is powerful, and while not free, it is reasonably priced. I was also pleasantly surprised at how quickly the developer responded to feedback. The next day, it was in the update. If you are looking for a tool to create icons. This is one program that you really should download and try. Try others too. But this will likely be the one you buy.

I have used iconStiX for years, but recently it has failed. It no longer allows attaching icons to files, only to folders. This is true for both the drop box and the Attach Custom Icon menu choice. This may be a bug in v3.4.

iconStiX (V2.2) is a great big pleasant surprise. It seems like everything I attempt to do—works …and works well. It's easy to use, not hard to figure out, (although a few features aren't as intuitive as they might be) and has plenty of output options. I've tried several similar apps but I'm gonna stick with this one. Easily worth $8.99 any day.

Still the best in it's class for what it does, with a clean UI and loads of options. The De-Facto Icon tool for OSX

For many years, I've been using Viou for creating my folder icons. Viou did, what I wanted, but I didn't like it because its user interface was complicated and barely intuitional. iconStiX does everything Viou did, but in a more convenient way. Furthermore, iconStiX supports the large icons in MacOS X Snow Leopard (512px x 512px), and you can label your folders with your own text. iconStiX is great, and I recommend it to everyone.

This is a heaven sent. I used to use the program Viou for creating custom folder icons, but it ceased to properly function in 10.6, and even after many e-mails to the author, he has not really done anything to fix it. IconStiX is clean, loaded with features, and best of all, 64 bit native. More people deserve to find this program and use it.
