Can Combine Icons

3.0.5
04 November 2002

Modify & convert Mac OS X icons.

Overview

Can Combine Icons allows Mac OS X users to create impressive customised icons within minutes, by using icons and artwork already available. The simple, yet powerful, interface scales beautifully and is fun to use both for the novice computer user and the desktop customisation freak.

What's new in Can Combine Icons

Version 3.0.5 adds the following:
  • Dramatic improvement of the quality of created 16x16 and 32x32 icons
  • Creates open folder variations if they are present in the originals (for example the Aqua folder) and the user preference is set. Warning, creates icons larger than 100kB!
  • Fixed the occasional accidental creation of a file called \"temp.tiff\" in the current user\'s home folder
  • Fixed a crashing bug when batch saving in 10.2 and 10.2.1

beware, this developer will still process your credit card order, but DON'T buy this app, it's dead, it hasn't been updated in years and the developer has apparently lost all interest in reviving it.

In its day (until the final release in 2002), Can Combine Icons was a delight. Although my licensed copy seems to still work in 10.6.4, I'm reluctantly moving on because CCI's maximum icon size is the old 128 x 128 pixels, not the current 512 x 512 pixels.

An hour of investigating & experimenting led me to a satisfactory solution: 1. Create a 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. Creating the icon image in a full-featured image editor beats the limited imaging editing in most/all icon editors.

This is one of those unique programs that are easy to use, inexpensive, stable and a great value. Unfortunately, there seems to be no one developing it anymore and no way to register for a serial number. I paid at Kagi my $10 USD and never received a serial. I tried contacting the developer, but no reply. I contacted Kagi and easily received a refund. If I had received a serial I would have given a 5 rating

It hasn't been updated in a few years, but it seems to work perfectly under Leopard.

Leopard? This is so old it couldn't possibly handle Leopard icons even if it does function.

Actually, I'm still using it under Snow Leopard (10.6.4) to make custom combination icons (e.g., a folder/box backdrop with my client's logo in the foreground). Still works fine, and I don't notice any loss of clarity when I pump the icons up full size. Still, I wish there was an alternate (or the developer would release the code into the wild).

REGISTRATION OKAY... Have finally been contacted by developer who has been more than helpful. I am happy now to recommend this product. Seems he was sending emails but they weren't getting through. Neither of us is sure why. But alls well that ends well.

In Oct 2006 I sent in my registration fee and three months later, after repeated emails, still no response. Is the developer seriously ill, lost at sea, or just gone AWOL with my money? I've contacted Kagi. Do NOT pay for registration at this time.

I paid for this program and after re-installing my OS, I needed to re-register it. problem is that my key won't work because their site has been down for the Summer. So I paid for a product and now it is completely broken. Anyone know of a hack? This is pathetic.

I don't think it's really broken, but I did notice their site is either down or gone. What sucks is I had removed it from my computer before and just now had to reinstall it, only to find out that I can't reregister the thing.

It only technically works. Saving icons to PNG format seems dead. You're right about turning icons into black images when they get smaller. A work around for that seems to be saving the icon as a TIFF file, opening it in Preview, saving it again as a Photoshop file (via Preview, you don't need Photoshop), then pasting that back into CCI. For whatever reason, CCI can work with a pasted Photoshop images, but not certain desktop icons. That sucks, of course, but until they update it it seems to be the only way.

Well, I use the app every day, several times a day and it works (OS X 10.3.5 on my iBook). Granted it does have a couple of cosmetic UI bugs that in no way effect the use or output of this app. This app does work and is completely stable in my experience. So why fix what ain't broke?

I can't think of any reason to upgrade it. I haven't seen any bugs, and I've owned it for more than 2 years. I can't think of any features to add either so it's not surprising that there's been no updates.

Hi, I'm trying to register my copy of CanCombine Icons but each time I submit the registration, the application quits. I'm using OS X 10.3.4 and have moved/reinstalled software from my old computer that uses OS X 10.2.8. Can anyone offer any suggestions for fixing this problem? ps I've looked for a plist file but there is none.
