As, in general, details are pretty important, the graphical designs of your icons can have some pull in the overall success of your product. Programs like RealWorld Icon Editor are developed to help you come up with some great looking icons for your programs.

With RealWorld Icon Editor you will be able to create icons from scratch, from an image or from multiple parts. This program features a large amount of handy functions, such as drawing tools, text tools and various photo editing functions.

One of the biggest improvements in the newest version of RealWorld Icon Editor is the introduction of layers. These will open up a lot more possibilities and help you come up with some even more interesting designs. Although it may not seem so at first, using layers will also help you work faster and more efficiently.

The users of RealWorld Icon Editor will quickly discover that this program offers an impressive number of advantages. One of the most important ones is that the icons which they create will be compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7 as well as with Windows Vista.

Besides its many image editing features and effects, RealWorld Icon Editor has another trait that I really liked. It offers a lot of assistance through help manuals and video tutorials to those who don’t have a lot of experience in using the program. This is actually quite great, as the number of buttons can be a bit overwhelming at first.

Personally, I think RealWorld Icon Editor is truly a complete solution for all your icon editing needs. This program has batch icon creation capabilities and is actually affordable, so I recommend it to everyone who is in search of such a tool.
