Welcome to Iconpaper v2! And to celebrate, Iconpaper has a review of Img2Icns by Shiny Frog, an application that allows you to do some helpful things if you are just getting started in the customization. Img2Icns is an application that allows you to drag any picture (JPG, PNG, etc.) into the window and a series of options are available.
To follow along with these steps, look at the picture above. The first option available is turning a picture into a folder. When you click the folder option, a folder is created on your desktop. Unlike the normal folder icon, this new untitled folder uses your image as the icon. You can either keep the folder and use it regularly, or drag the folder in CandyBar and use that icon for any other thing you need it for. However, there is an easier way to do this. You can drag the picture in the window (like before) but now you should click the icon option instead of folder. This will convert your image into an .icns icon. This can be dragged into CandyBar just like before and be used for whatever you want. The third option is the iPhone option. This will place a .png file into your desktop. This new file is smaller and resized as an iPhone icon so you can use it on your Jailbroken iPod/iPhone. The fourth and final option is a favicon file. For those unfamiliar with this type of icon, it is the small 16 pixel by 12 pixel icon found right before the URL. By clicking this option, your picture will be a resized PNG file.
That’s about it. Img2Icns is a great application if you need to quickly convert any picture into a useful icon. I personally love it, earning it five out of five stars in my book. What do you think? Now that it’s the summer (summer just started for me), and Friday, I hope you all have a great summer and have tons of fun. I’ll talk to you next week!
