In Windows™ Vista, you have 256x256 large icons as a solution to prevent icons from
appearing tiny on high resolution desktops.
GConvert manipulates Windows Vista icons without any problem (any
color depth), even
if it is not run on Vista. The program also stores Vista icons in
icon libraries (ICL) or in DLL files that can be recognized by Windows and
Vista icons should be compressed in order to make them smaller: 256x256
icon images are stored in the PNG (Portable Network Graphic) format; however
Vista icons are not recognized by previous versions of Windows. Thus GConvert
lets you add or remove PNG compression (in the
Icon editor) if you would like to make backward-compatible icons:
GConvert can finally generate Vista icon images (256x256) from your existing icon
images if you wish.
