Icon editing software for classic Mac OS (version 2.4) and OS X (vers. 2.4 & 2.5), last updated in 2003 (2.5).

  Iconographer is a an icon editor. It allows you to both change the icons of items, as well as edit the icon resources used by various programs. Iconographer has been created from the ground up to deal with many icon formats. These include: classic Mac OS (8-bit icons only), Mac OS 8.5+ (32-bit icons with 8-bit masks), Mac OS X (128 x 128 icons in .icns files), Windows and Windows XP (.ico files), and Mac OS X Server (48 x 48 icons in .tiff files).

  Due to its flexibility, Iconographer is useful to both beginners and advanced users. It can be used for a wide range of tasks, ranging from simply creating some customized folder icons, to editing complex resource files for an application, to converting icons between platforms.

Formerly $15 shareware, now free. You can "register" it with the name "Iconographer is now free" and the registration code "HG066414".

The above versions of Iconographer are still available for free from this Mscape Software web page. Plus some other "decommissioned" goodies.

Great utility! Fantastic for customising the OS 9 desktop. I used it to create the missing “Control Strip Modules(Disabled)” folder, matching the folders Extensions Manager uses. Nice to make it feel more or less OEM, and seems to cover every conceivable Macintosh icon variation, short of newer ultra high resolution, post-“Retina” variants.

A fantastic bit of shareware I’d have gladly paid for! Big smile
