GConvert is a full-featured icon software that lets you extract, create, edit, manage, compile and convert icons. It reads any icon resource file (EXE, DLL, ICL, OCX, NIL, CPL, SCR, RSRC, ICNS...) and then allows you to save extracted icons in other image formats (ICO, BMP, PNG, GIF, Adobe Photoshop PSD, JPG and more thanks to plug-ins), copy them to the clipboard or use the enhanced drag/drop support for inserting icon images directly into your documents, Web pages or applications.

GConvert offers you more flexibility and functionality than other standard icon extractors:

  • extracts any icon with all images from any file containing icons (any size and color depths including 32-bit XP, Vista icons, Windows 7 icons and MacOS X icons, even with new 256x256 and 512x512 formats).
  • create, modify and manage icon libraries in 32-bit and 16-bit .ICL files (icon library), Zip archives and compiled DLL files.
  • includes a powerful icon editor which lets you manage the images of your icons. Only import one picture and all other icon images can be created in some clicks.
  • enhanced support for 32-bit alpha-blended icons (natively supported by Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Macintosh Mac OS X). GConvert draws these icons correctly even if not running under XP/Vista/7, saves them as they would appear under XP/Vista/7 and can also keep the alpha channel when converting icons to PNG or PSD files.
  • convert image files (BMP, PNG, GIF, PSD, JPG, ICNS...) into icons that can be used with desktop shortcuts. Customize your desktop or create unique themes.
  • search for hidden icons on your computer. Store these icons into icon libraries.
  • recognizes Macintosh icons stored in ICNS and Macintosh RSRC files.
  • creates bitmap strips for toolbars.
  • supports batch operations to convert several icons.
  • saves your icon and icon folder favorites.
  • drag and drop icon images directly onto external applications.
  • create Windows cursors (CUR) from icons, export icons to a folder or Web page, modify icons in EXE and DLL files...
  • export icons in 32-bit DLL files recognized by Windows.
  • full support for 256x256 Windows Vista and 7 icons with PNG compression.
  • integrates Windows Explorer (context menu) to open icon files.
Finally it offers an easy-to-use skinned interface with a context-sensitive help file, a FAQ, an animated tutorial, a sample icon library... This is a 15-day fully functional copy, and it still works after expiration, although some features will be off.
