    great work! But could you make it to where you can convert multiple icons at once??????? :) Thanks!

    Its a very handy tool, I use it all the time :)

    If I could pick one new feature, it would be the ability to “batch process” multiple images into icons. I have a bunch of PNG’s that I want to convert without getting jagged edges or trashing the alphachannel. So far your converter is the only one I found that doesn’t butcher PNG’s, but having to convert them one by one is very tedious. If its not too much trouble, batch processing would be very welcome :)

    Also: it would save some keystrokes if the converter copies the name from the original image when saving it as an icon, rather than having the user type it by hand. Is this possible?

    Keep up the great work!

    Excellent product, very easy to use. It is now easier to see what I want on my desktop shortcuts.
    I can donate or if you want me to knock up some help text for you (HTML/PDF for free) please contact me.

    I would like ICO to make the background transparent, like Microsoft Picture Manager. If I first remove the background using the picture manager, and then ICO the background is no longer transparent. Picture manager will not convert to ICO. So I cannot see a way to get the ICON with a transparent background.

      If you can remove the background before load it into the ico converter, then the result will have transparent background. But thanks about it, I will think about the feature in the new version.

    For some reason, it appears as if you can only convert images that are no bigger than 256x256px and anything larger will be scaled down to that size. Is there any possibility that you might consider updating it to accept/convert larger images (for example 512x512px, etc). Thank you! Great App Otherwise!!!
