***** AISS (available from is required to use this
program *****

"Icon Editor" is another one of my 'bloated' programs that I made with Hollywood
7.0. I hope you enjoy it!

Requirements: In addition to having AISS installed on your system, you also need
to have Stephan Rupprecht's "CopyIcon" (available from OS4 Depot) and the
png.iconmodule (png_im.lha from OS4 Depot).

Icon Editor can be used for such things as:
*Separating Alpha-Channels
*Basic Painting (of both image and alpha channel)
*Cropping (decreasing margins)
*Adding Space (increasing margins)
*Shadow Effect
*Glow Effect
*Merging Two Images Together
*Adding Text
*Making a Text Stencil over an Image
*Smoothing Edges (for either, or both, the image and the alpha channel)
*Adjusting Gamma, Contrast, Brightness, Saturation, and Hue
*Image and Alpha-Channel Inverting
*Box Fade
*Elliptical Fade
*Shape Fade
*Converting PDFs into Icons

Hints and Tips:
*Using the ".info" extension will Save an Icon (without it, a png image will be
*Placing the mouse pointer above the buttons will cause hints to be displayed in
the window's title bar.
*Switching between states (if the icon has two states) is done with the button
in the lower right-hand corner.
*New Icons can be loaded quickly by dragging and dropping them onto the main
*The Merge Tool also allows for drag'n'drop.
*The Paint Tool allows the keyboard (arrow keys and spacebar) to be used
together with the mouse.

Special thanks to:
*Mason for his AISS artwork (used extensively throughout this program).
*Frank Ruthe (cha05e90) for his beta-testing and icons.

Version 1.9 (10/4/18):
*Added PDF import (idea from Nuder_Try)
*Added Batch PDF to Icon conversion (found under the File menu)

Version 1.8 (11/15/17)---improvements suggested by Raziel:
*Added a tool to clear (erase) the entire image/alpha-channel
*Added tool type options for window placement and default path.
*Improved the GUI elements for the various Tools.
*Added 10 levels of Undo/Redo to the Paint Tool.

Version 1.7 (3/3/15):
*Fixed a bug reported by Lemen.

Version 1.6 (2/27/15):
*The CopyIcon file check now also looks in AppDir:
*Fixed bugs reported by Petrol.
*All tools are now available through the menus.
*Added an option to hide the toolbar.

Version 1.5 (2/23/15):
*Main options are now available through menus (thanks to the new menu
functionality in Hollywood 6.0).
*Merging images is much faster now.
*A couple bugs were fixed.

Version 1.2 (2/20/12):
*New Functions have been added (such as Sharpen, Gamma, Contrast, Brightness,
Saturation, and Hue) and many old functions (such as Blur, Glow, and Shadow)
have been improved (thanks to the new functionality of Hollywood 5.0).

Version 1.1 (9/12/10):
*Added a tool that inverts the colors of the image and/or the alpha channel.
*Fixed a display bug.
*Fixed a bug in the Paint Form Fill tool.

Version 1.0 (9/8/10):
