Help: Make great icons

Sat Aug 31, 2019 1:12 pm

I was wondering which application will make the perfect ICONS
for your apps, so when you add it to windows toolbar i shows the perfect result
i have used in all the years iconworkshop but it won't give the perfect result as displayed
at the toolbar or in any given way.

Thank you

Not sure what you mean by "perfect result"?

Adding your icons to the form properties and app settings should display the icon in the taskbar.

If you mean the image quality of the icon then I guess that is just down to the software you're using to create the image. I find good quality icons are made from a large high quality image shrunken down.

My recommendation is if you're going to make icons or even logos to stick with a Vector editor like Gravit Designer, Inkscape, Illustrator or Affinity Designer.

The reason why is raster graphics are composed of small squares called pixels in a large matrix-like grid and when you scale the image it can look distorted which isn't pretty. While vector graphics are created via a mathematical equation so you don't need to worry about losing quality. You can design at 50x50 and scale that up to 500x500 and never lose quality.

I actually go over how to design logos and icons in my graphic design course I released earlier this year. If you're interested you can visit my website (link on my profile).
