Got one... create the image as a gif, bmp, jpeg, etc in paint, then upload it to this site:

Which will convert it into an ico file

Howdy. :mellow:

Another option, with all open source tools, is using The GIMP to create graphics in .ppm format and then converting them to .ico format with PpmToWinIcon.

Download something called IconArt. It can create multiple icons in one. Sometimes it's cranky when you add more than ten icons in one ico file, but it's pretty good.

ConWare - IconArt at www.conware-pro.com

(For Future Reference)

I just saw GenIconXP mentioned at shellcity.net: "GenIconXP is an icon utility for Windows. It allows one to convert any image format to a windows multi-resolution icon file (.ICO)."

Interesting... will check that out when i have time!

An old school method it to save the graphic as a .BMP and then rename to .ICO.

Haven tried to see if it works when compiled though.


Agreement is not necessary - thinking for one's self is!

That does not work... it only appears to work because Windows still reconginses it as a bitmap because of it's file "header".
