Read on to find out what makes Glyph Lab's stock icon set special...
Each stock icon comes in four sizes: 16x16, 24x24, 32x32, and 48x48. These are the most common sizes for Vista and XP icons. They are not just resized from a larger image (that never works well), instead, each is carefully optimized at each size to ensure that they are as clear at 16x16 as they are at 48x48. Small icons are useful if you need to pack many functions into you toolbar or website. It's important to include the option to display larger icons if you want your software to be accessible by visually impaired users.
Each icon is supplied in these eight formats:
Windows XP / Vista .ico 32-bit
Windows .ico 256 color
32-bit bitmap with 8-bit alpha
24-bit bitmap with magenta mask
256 color gif with transparency
32-bit png with 8-bit alpha
256 color png with transparency
Adobe®Photoshop®.psd with layers
That should cover most situations, but if you need another format we can usually supply it on request.
The license agreement allows you to make new icons from the stock icons, and that is made very easy by the inclusion of Photoshop format image files. In these, each object element of the icon is in a separate layer which can be moved, rotated, deleted, resized, recolored, and copied between icons.
The animation here shows a magnifying glass being copied from the Search Organiser icon to the News icon to make a Search News icon. You can see the separate layers in the Adobe® Photoshop® layers palette. Corel® Photo-Paint® and Paint Shop Pro® can also manipulate layers.
Every image is supplied in three states or modes: normal, hot and disabled. Hot is a brighter, more saturated version of the Normal icon used to provide mouse rollover feedback.
