Axialis IconWorkshop has been around for a long time and its authors keep improving on its technologies. The program has been upgraded to version 6.30, which adds support for Image Strips. These images are wide bitmaps containing several icons placed side-by-site and are used by developers to populate Toolbars, ImageViews and TreeViews. Editing image strips is usually uncomfortable for developers because standard image editing programs are not designed to work with very wide bitmaps.
This new version provides a professional and easy-to-use solution. When opening the strip image, each icon is placed in a list and can be edited individually. All image formats and color depths are supported, as well as alpha channel and color-coded transparency. Using this feature developers don't have to struggle with wide bitmaps anymore. Additionally, several objects packs permits creating icons without drawing skills, simply by using drag & drops to assemble ready-to-use objects. The latest one "Lite Toolbars" has been designed to create crisp and sharp icons for your Toolbar Image Strips.
Webmasters and blog owners know the importance of illustrations to create attractive web pages. Axialis IconWorkshop has a new feature which permits creating illustration images by merging symbols with fixed background images of your own. The whole procedure is done in one single batch operation. The resulting illustration images all have the same style and can be easily resized and exported as GIF. Two object packs named "Web 2.0 Icons" and "Web Illustrations"
