Simple and effective. Does exactly what it says it will do. Nice touch having a link to copy the HTML tag for adding a favicon to your web page.

Interesting and functional for making icon. I was really interested in the old favorite icon extraction from the actual WEB page addresses which we see in the URL posted at the top. These icon can be obscure and difficult to capture. Perhaps some one will resolve that issue in the future.

Great software. Easy to use and it works!—KC

If you want a quick, simple solution this is it - no fuss, no problems and you even get a preview of the icon which helps you to choose the best resize technique for your design.

Good bit of kit Tried this out and found it to work perfectly for what I was trying to achieve.

Incredible Adsen FavIcon This is much better than trying to generate a file online since it takes a heap of patience to work with graphics especially something so tiny and sensitive, 16 pixels.

As far as I tried that now I was not able to draw anything by myself, only can work on ready photos or drawings. Is there a chance to create own images?

While I gave no instruction for your company to send any reminder about leaving a comment about Buddy Icon Constructor FREE I will be courteous enough to leave you the following comment. I downloaded your program along with a competitor’s program, Realworld Icon Editor, and found it had much greater capabilities. I will tank you for removing my email address from your contacts.

Buddy Icon Constructor I used it and then uninstalled it. Why? Because it would only save the icons as .gif files. I could not use them because they weren't saved as icons. But I did like the ease of use and simplicity of program. I also downloaded Real World Icon Editor, which let me save the icons in a useable format, but was more complicated to use.

Buddy Icon Constructor This simple application is great. It's super ez to use and does exactly what I want. I'm considering ordering the full version from the developer.Only drawback for me is the fixed cropping ratio and the common advertisement that comes with free downloads.But the application is really beneficial.

New User Very good interface, and ease of use. Above all very stable.I did try numerous icon creator kits, and none were as easy as Buddy Icon Constructor for free :)Thanks & regardsJesse

ubuntu installation I can't get this installed into ubuntu. Tried "/" for path, wizard switches back to "\".

Nice thing! I've tried this soft and it is very nice! Thank you.

Ready for Vista, but not Vistable Any To Icon Pro is still fine, but the default options needs to be upgraded for Vista's 128x128 and 256x256 pixels icon dimensions. Also, I was not able to purchase Any To Icon via the program's internal Internet browser, so it's settings must be wrong - at least so both my bank and PayPal said. The next version should also offer option to batch convert (from image to icon) via Windows' menu context only - without any GUI window.

It's amazing. The ease of use in any2icon pro is amazing. Before I had bad exprernces with icon software but any2icon makes it soo easy to convert my photoshop logos to icons witch is now used on my apps. Thanks so much.

psd to ico "psd to ico" has an error that leaves a white border in circular images with background tranparent.

Nice software, but... I downloaded the software in hopes that I could use it to replace some of vista icons on my desktop. This app seems to run well and be designed well but it would not make icons large enough for my needs.

My oppinion Chameleon Icons is not working on my system. I would like to know why. When I start, it doesn't even appear in task manager's processes list, it appears and then dissapears (crashes) with no warning. This is my configuration AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Ati Radeon x550 1024 MB RAM Windows Xp SP2 Administrator Account r0x0t0 at
