Icon plug-in for Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro

Resource Link:

When we create applications, we usually need one or more icons. We'll definitely want a main program icon - in several sizes. We may also want another icon for our setup program.

Sometimes our client supplies icon files, but often they do not.

There are some great tools available for creating and managing Icons. One of my favorites, IconLover, is available at the site this link is about.

But most out-of-the-box, general purpose graphics editors lack support for the Windows .ICO file format. The solution is at this link, and it's free: It's a plug-in for Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro (even some version of Photoshop Elements).

At the bottom of this link's page, you'll find an entry for "Icon Plug-In for PhotoShop." Simply download the zip file, unzip, and follow the instructions in the ReadMe.txt file.

Your favorite, general purpose graphics editor will now be able to deal with ICO files!
