Using Plug-Ins

GConvert uses external plug-ins to implement more formats for saving icons. You can manage plug-ins using the Plug-In Manager in the Environment Options.

Plug-ins are special DLL library files that were programmed to interact with GConvert.

The original distribution is shipped only with two external plug-ins to support JPEG and GIF files. Other plug-ins may be available freely for download from

Normally plug-ins available for download are shipped in Self-Installing packages so they can be automatically set up in order to be handled by GConvert. But this tab allows you to add or remove existing plug-ins manually.

Please check the GConvert's Web page for other plug-ins, freely available to download.
