Portable IcoFX 3.6.1 Business Edition
Icofx Portable is an award winning professional icon and cursor editor for Windows. It is an all-in-one solution for icon creation, extraction and editing. It is designed to work with Windows and Macintosh icons supporting transparency.
IcoFX Portable is a rich-featured software application which enables you to create and design icons, cursors and images. It is primarily developed while keeping the advanced user in mind.
The interface of the program is professional and intuitive. Importing items into the environment can be done by using either the file browser or ‘drag and drop’ method. IcoFX supports plenty of file types for the input, such as JPG, BMP, ICO, XPM, GIF, EXE and DLL.
Users are supplied with a toolbar when you can work with some standard graphic editing functions, such as rectangular selection, crop, brush, line, text, fill, eraser, blur, brighten, color picker, ruler, zoom and flip.
It is possible to preview the results in a small frame on the upper right part of the screen, along with information on the colors and a histogram. So, you can adjust the colors levels, pick different sizes of brushes and variations of gradients, choose the layers mode (e.g. color dodge, overlay, darken), as well as view a history of the commands.
IcoFX Portable comes with multiple image effects and adjustments which revolve around the colors, emboss, blur, sharpen, glow, drop shadow, hue, saturation, contrast, brightness, transparent color, curves and opacity, just to name a few. Furthermore, you can import and duplicate pictures, set the cursor hotspot and animation frame rate, create a Windows or Macintosh icon from an image, as well as build icons, cursors and images in batch mode.
IcoFX Portable supports keyboard shortcuts and multiple languages for the UI, is very responsive to key strokes and mouse events, and includes user documentation. We have not experienced any problems throughout our evaluation, since IcoFX did not freeze, hang or display error dialogs.
