» G.D.G. Software Products > GConvert > Feature Tour > Support for XP icons (alpha-blended)
With Windows™ XP, new icons with partial transparency were introduced: 32-bit icon
images with an additional alpha channel (RGBA) or alpha-blended icons.
GConvert completely handles the handy 32-bit icon format for Windows
XP with full alpha blending (i.e. partial transparency). GConvert draws XP icons correctly (even if you
do not work under XP!), saves them as they would appear under XP and can also keep
the alpha channel when converting icons to PNG, PSD files & 32-bit BMP files - or converting these image formats to icons.
GConvert also can properly remove the alpha channel when converting
an icon to an image format that doesn't support partial transparency.
you can also see the alpha channel of any icon thanks to the Alpha tab of the icon
