Among those features is the ability to import icons from executables, image and library files and the search and extract function that enables busy artists scan through the contents of a folder or a drive and arrange all images found in any files into a single icon library for easy and effective management.
This program features a sufficiently improved image editor that offers graphic artists a number of breakthrough features, including the ability to create icons with several raster layers.
