Awesome program. I wonder if it can be linked to photoshop as a plug-in...

what if you drag images of different size on it? will it create the matching formats inside the ico file then?

this is a great little gem, but for some reason the 256x256 size icon only gets created as 256 colour palette.    anyone else experiencing this?

First of all, great app!!!
I've been using it a lot but I realized today that no longer works.
I mean, when I drop one single .png image, I get an error message saying that was impossible to convert.
Specifically: acces denied. Then I run the app like admin but with no effect, because when I drop files nothing happens.
Which may be the problem? (W7, 64 bits)

Anyway, thank you in advance!

Hehe
That's because you need to rename x2ico.exe_ to x2ico.exe :P
DeviantArt doesn't allow zipped executables because some users(Social rejects) started uploading viruses etc.

Using this in my project now, thank you

I do have one request tho, When I input a 96x96 sized icon and I only have 256x256 ticked, it's not outputting anything at all, would be great if the automated method would just make the .ico with the max size possible from the input or have a switch that will auto scale it if you'd prefer.

Thanks heaps for thinking of the many uses this could have and making silent methods and output to source folder etc etc, great work!

Let me know if you add a fix for the sizing via a PM or I'll just check back here for updates from time to time with hopefulness :D

Never thought someone might want it! But will add an option to upscale the frame for sizes bigger than the image in the next release :)
Wonder why you didn't send me a private note about it!

Super useful!
From the portability to the command line support, I love it all.

On Google Code it's licensed under GPL v3, but I can't find its source code.
Here on DeviantArt it's licensed under CC by-ND v3, so that's interesting too.

Good work, this is going to save me a lot of time.

previous version worked pretty well.
But latest don't...
Nothing is inside the output folder after conversion.
Reply
:iconheilnizar:
heilnizar Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2012
Strange, this version is much better, I rewrote much of the code.
I need more info in order to help you:
-Is it placed on a read-only drive/folder?
-Did you change the output folder? Look it up on the settings tab.
-How about shell context menu? Does that work for you?
-Operating system and is it 32 or 64 bit?

The only bug I know exists for sure is converting non-squared images, its already fixed on my side, I only need to upload it.
But since I'm moving away from Google code it will take a couple of days.

Let me know

Thank you for your reply heilnizar.

-Is it placed on a read-only drive/folder?
No, it's not read-only

-Did you change the output folder? Look it up on the settings tab.
Yes, I changed the folder and images aren't there.
I put it back to default(.\Icons) but same result.

-How about shell context menu? Does that work for you?
Didn't work as well.

-Operating system and is it 32 or 64 bit?
Windows7 SP1 64bit, didn't work on Windows XP (in VMware) too.


----
progress bar in x2ico shows tasks are in action but nothing out there.
Again 0.9.6 worked well, but 0.9.7 don't.
Since I overwrote the file I can't try 0.9.6 anymore...

Great app. What does Square Non-Square mean?
Reply
:iconheilnizar:
heilnizar Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2012
If you drop an image that doesn't have height equal to width and this option is enabled it will then be squared, example:
100 x 128 = 128 x 128
200 x 256 = 256 x 256
Otherwise it will just be converted without squaring.

Does this do any kind of oversampling or filtering in order to keep the icons from getting blurry?

Nope, they just get resized.
