This was always the best icon editor for Mac OS. Unfortunately the developer hasn't updated it in ages. It still seems to work fine.

It is now Freeware. On his site he gives a free password:
User name "Iconographer is now free" and the registration code "HG066414"
As you'll see when you go to dowload.

Very nice of Mihai Parparita. Thanks!

According to http://www.mscape.com/, All Mscape Software products are discontinued. After a few years of neglect (Iconographer was last updated in mid-2003), it's time to come clean and admit that Mscape Software is no more. I've moved on to webbier things. For the sake of posterity, and in case any of this is still useful to anyone, I'm including download links for all products.

Great little app. I use it in conjunction with photoshop all the time. Its real easy to use them both to make favicon's for web sites, and of course you can load icons into photoshop with their full transparency.

BUT IT NOT A UNIVERSAL BINARY. In fact it hasn't been updated in quite some time. It is due.

All previous versions have been excellent for this straightforward icon editor, but version 2.5 adds some handy features and now native to OS X. Great value for this powerful tool.

I've had some issues with this release, but nothing critical. The author has always responded promptly and helped come up with workarounds and fixes. All things considered, still the best choice for Mac icon development.
