Create icons and edit them using this free icon creator:
This software is pretty handy, especially for the bloggers and developers, who don’t know much about logo and icon designing software. The tools for creating logo are present on the left side of the software’s window, and consist of tools for Selection, Color Picker, Color Replacer, Pencil, Paint Brush, Air brush, Flood Fill, Text, and Shapes. You can use all of these, to create one good-looking icon. Simply, click on requisite tool and draw on the ruled canvas.
Including the color picker tool is pretty good step by the developers. It does increases your speed, and makes it easy to quickly select desired color, and use it in your icon. If in case, you want your own custom color, then you can create one by using the color palate. Simply, click on any of the two big sized color buttons at the right side of UI (on top of rest of colors), to get the color palette. Plus, there’s also a slider to control the lightness or darkness of color, at the bottom of the color palette.
The selection tool is also pretty handy option included. Using it, you can select a particular part of the icon (drawing you are working on), and then, move that part out of the design, or scale it to make it bigger. The Text tool is also useful. This icon maker gives you the options to change font style and size. Finally, not to forget, the Eraser tool. This tool is pretty handy and makes creating icons an easy process. Using it, you can erase any particular part of the icon, that you don’t want and then draw again.
One pretty good feature of this free icon creator is, you can work on multiple icon files together in multiple tabs. Every time you add a new icon, it gets opened in a new tab.
