Axialis Icon Workshop the icon editor
Use Icon Workshop to create and edit your own sets of icons

While there is a great selection of software that can be used to edit digital photo and create works of art from scratch, when it comes to working with the icon, there is far less choice. Icon Workshop looks to redress the balance, bringing many of the tools found in traditional image editors into a program designed for working with miniature masterpieces. The program can be used to create icons suitable for use in Windows, Linux and Mac OS, and allows for the use of alpha channels to create eye-catching transparency effects and smooth borders and shadows.

Existing image files can be converted into icons, or they can be started from scratch. Icon Workshop can also be used to create and edit Image Strips for use in program toolbars. When opting to create a new icons from scratch, image objects are on hand to make things quick and easy. These customisable and resizable ready made objects can be combined with each other to create a stunning icon in a matter of minutes. Professional level tools are available, and Photoshop images complete with layers can be imported to use as a starting point.

As well as creation and editing tool, an icon manager can be used to browse through existing icon libraries and extract icons from other files. Any icons which are found within other files can be loaded up into the editor and customised as required. Using Icon Workshop, it is easy to create icons that are things of beauty, working with a powerful, dedicated tool.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.20

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
