What are people saying about RealWorld Icon Editor

LAWRENCE GROVES Downloaded to Win XP SP3. Get error message that installer incompatible with win sys tem
Mar 26 2011 at 7:49pm Copy Link
S B Some observations and first impressions:

This seems like a real winner.

I have had no issues in installing on my (Windows 7) system.

From TopTenReviews (it's rated #6 of 12, seemingly downrated solely for its lack of an icon library system): "RealWorld Icon Editor is a great icon, cursor and 3D image designing program. ... Although RealWorld does not have a library system for creating or managing libraries, it is the best product we found that creates 3D images."

I've just started using RealWorld Icon Editor. It is *very* easy to use though powerful, will instantly create whole sets of icons that you can tailor individually if necessary, does seem to have effective icon management facilities, and has surprisingly powerful and (so far) easy-to-use 3D capabilities.

It creates icons from existing images, or its own 2D drawing and 3D tools (real 3D tools using rotation, scene creation, compositing, camera & lighting position, etc.) So far, everything seems well thought out and friendly. There are impressive-looking plug-ins, too.

The on-line forums seem to have happy users, quick responses from other users and developers, and a general lack of complaints.

RWIE does not do cursors, that's apparently left for the free RealWorld Cursor Editor.

I've been using Axialis Icon Workshop--a great Icon creator, but without the real 3D capabilities of the RWIE. Further, so far the RWIE workflow seems easy and very fast.

I'm still experimenting, but I'm on board with this one--many thanks!

Vlastimil Milér Thanks for the comments so far. :-)

If there is an issue with the installer, please make sure you have downloaded the right one for your Windows (the 64-bit edition will not work on 32-bit Windows even if you have a 64-bit processor). If all fails, get the portable version that does not need installing, just unzipping.

About the #6 position on TopTenReviews - the review is almost 5 years old and a lot has changed from that time. Although TopTenReviews has updated the version numbers, they haven't changed the content of the review or the comparison table.

Max Murkel @ Lawrence:

Can't confirm your problem. Did you download / install the proper version, likely the 32-bit version? Installed fine here on XP Pro SP 3

Cameron Gay Can it generate Icons for the MS Office Ribbons?
Mar 27 2011 at 9:33am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér You should have no problems with that. The actual file format needed may depending on your development environment, but no matter if it is .ico, .png, or .bmp, you can create or modify it with the editor. The primary function is creation of .ico files with multiple image sizes. You can then save the individual images as .png or .bmp (including .bmp with 32-bit color depth with smooth transparency).

Michael K Although the headline offer is for the Pro version, will there be an option behind the "Buy Now" button to buy the Standard Version at this discount instead ?

It would be most helpful if this would be possible as the standard version would be fine to meet my needs, and It would make the difference between seriously considering a purchase or passing on the offer because I have only occasional need to alter icons and already have several icon editors that I've collected along the way.

Vlastimil Milér Although the coupon code is not limited, the the current discount offer was designed for the Pro version and makes the Pro version almost 50% cheaper than the undiscounted Standard version. Offering both will complicate things too much.

You must of course carefully count if the value of the application is worth the cost. If you already have a couple of icon editors and you typically just modify icons with a pencil tool, you do not need this one. RW Icon Editor has higher ambitions than the other editors and offers unique features like image layers with styles, gamma-correct blending and resampling, per-image optimizations, 3D tools, etc.

DrTeeth Just had a brief play with thsi program, just scratched the surface and it is brilliant. The supporting web site is excellent too.

All being well, will be buying when offer is open. Shame about the infrequent updates though.

Sep 5 2011 at 7:17am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér There is roughly 1 major update per 2 years. The goal is to have automatic updates like Chrome and remove the version number entirely, but that is going to take a while.
RealWorld Graphics - Sep 5 2011 at 9:39am Copy Link
DrTeeth Having auto updates and removing the version numbers will not necessarily mean more frequent updates. I just get nervous when updates/bug fixes are few and far between. I do not think I will be put off in this case though.

Sep 5 2011 at 1:47pm Copy Link
a a I agree with DrTeeth that it would be better to have regular incremental updates containing both fixes and new features, rather than lots of features/fixes in one go every two years.

The current release schedule means that if I make a feature request just after a major release, I'll have to wait two years before I can use it.
Sep 6 2011 at 4:37pm Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér As an author, I feel the same way. It is a pain to have a feature implemented, but not being able to distribute it to the users. But releasing a tiny update every month would annoy a lot of users, especially those that use the application once per month. They want to get work done and not to repeatedly instal updates. That is why there will be automatic updates in the 2012 release - in my opinion a prerequisite for shorter release cycles (and yes, I already have automatic updates implemented in my internal version).

Michael K @ Vlastimil

I'm not clear on what the "batch processing" feature really does and is capable of. An explanation of it and a couple of examples describing it's use and benefits would be most appreciated.


Jan 29 2012 at 11:50am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér Some of the functions of the application can be applied on multiple files at once. For example if you want to convert multiple images to icons, you can switch to the Batch page and drag a folder of images on the application to have them converted to icons. Other functions that can be applied in batch are extraction of icons from icon libraries, dll or exe files, extraction of PNG images from icons or creation of icon previews for web presentation. You can also define your own custom batch operation from the effects available in the application, but that is more difficult.

H. H. Hallo,
I just tried the realworld icon editor and I´m impressed, what a mighty tool this seems to be, I instantly made my decision for purchasing. At this great discount, 5 years of free upgrades and user-friendly registration -procedure (no hardware-footprint-activiation trouble) one can´t do anything wrong when buying now, even if one only will be an occasional nuser (like I´m). Thanks for offering this at bdj.

Perhaps I´m allowed to mention 2 other (non competitive) icon-related programs, wich I appreciate a lot (using win xp sp3), although they haven´t been updated for a long time - and which may be a useful supplement to the icon editor.
That´s an icon library manager and icon-extractor: (Abb Icon Pro)

and the only software I ever found after making long research via google, allowing to assign an icon to an individual file (not only to change whole file-groups//file-types icons): Icon Changer 3.8 (
With the possibility to assign icons to seperate files, the usability of an icon editor like realworld icon will be even extended

( @bdj if the links to the non competitive software is unwanted,
you may delete the phrase, but I think the links may be useful
and perhas a suggestion for another bdj-offer?? )

with kind regards

There will be a new version later this year that is going to include the incremental changes you can see in current RealWorld Paint (drawing tool command line, better user interface for layer styles, some new effects, import and export of Photoshop, GIMP and files with layer) and possibly one not yet announced change that may change the icon creation game for some people.

A question: Will you be implementing export/import for .obj files?
Hopefully with support for quad meshes.
Jun 18 2012 at 11:59am Copy Link
Yfor Hi Vlastimil,
This application looks very powerful. However, I can't find an easy way to: resize icon designs (which should be easy for the vector ones), and to set custom icon canvas sizes? Also, is it possible to export to a vector format or .eps?

Jun 18 2012 at 1:17pm Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér Tore: I have an old .obj importer and exporter laying here, but the code is outdated. I am not sure if I'll be adding it to the editor in the future.

Yannick: (the vector stuff is planned for the next version) You are probably wanting to add new image sizes to existing icons. You can do that from the Icon-Insert image-Custom format menu. The image can be copied and resized from the currently selected image. Possibly a better way is to add a new image size when converting an image to an icon.
RealWorld Graphics - Jun 18 2012 at 1:52pm Copy Link
Yfor Hi Vlastimil,
Thank you for your answer. What I mean is I need to work on custom-sized icons: not just 16px/32px/48px. I design apps for custom devices and need to have custom sizes, such as 24px, or 28px... or whatever. I also need to be able to design an icon in, say 48px and create downsized version of it - while still being able to edit them separately. Is that possible? I can do that with AI but its hard to manage when you have huge collections.
Jun 18 2012 at 4:34pm Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér The .ico file format may contain any combination of images from 1x1 pixel to 256x256 pixels and the editor allows you to create them. Adding non-standard sizes takes more clicks, but you can still add them to an .ico from the Icon menu (while editing an .ico or .ric file).

Also, when converting ordinary images to icons via a wizard, batch operation or from the Create menu (while editing images), you can add a new image size after clicking on the New Image button near the upper right corner of the wizard window.

While designing an icon at 48x48 pixels and then adding new, smaller formats using the 48x48 image as a template is possible, I would recommend to design the original image using a bigger canvas (~500x500 pixels) and then generate all needed sized from this image.

S B My earlier comments (Mar 26 2011, above) have proven quite true. I really like RWIE.

I have to say, though, that I didn't know of the thirty+ RWIE videos on Youtube -- there are many powerful capabilities and functions that I just didn't bother to learn about. I'll now have to re-do some icons to make them really, really great.

The forthcoming features ( (do switch to HD) are amazing, exceedingly powerful and seemingly *very* easy.

I'm amazed at the sophistication and usability of advanced 2- and 3-D design to be brought to bear on editing icons--but RWIE is destined to do much more!

I'm quite sold--and I *still* have included updates coming for a several more years!

(IconICan [not in the same league as RWIE] does have apparent issues: search for it and IconCool together)

Tore Hoyem @Vlastimil -
I'm finding it a bit hard to construct 'precision' images, needed to make icons that represent (for example) technical equipment with details.
Partly it's due to me not finding a good way to align the elements I'm working with.
Normally I'd use a vector drawing program for that sort of thing, but as I understand I would then have to export from vector to a bitmap format, then import this into RWIE. This kills of some of the flexibility I'm looking for.

I guess I could use the 3D tools for precision elements, but I'm not very familiar with NURBS (I use a subdivision modeler).

Do you have a suggested workflow for what I'm describing?

(I'm posting here,not on the RWIE forum, because other BDJers might be interested)

Jun 19 2012 at 4:10am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér I understand your difficulties. The built-in 3D editor is not the right thing for every icon and hence the plans mentioned above to include a lightweight vector editor (with a command line, where you can type exact coordinates) in the future version.

If you are using a vector editor to create your designs and are simply looking for a plain .png-.ico converter, buying RWIE would probably be an overkill (there is a free online converter on my web). While RWIE can be used as a batch .png-.ico converter, there are some advanced features like per-generated-image shadow outline enhancement that would interfere with the exact pixel placement of your original design.

There are no tools to help with shape alignment in the current editor (except alignment on pixel boundaries) as only 1 shape exists at each moment - the rest are just pixels. The closest you can get to control exact placement of shapes is via right-clicking a handle and selecting "Handle coordinates..." in the context menu and then type exact coordinates in the shown window. But doing this repeatedly would be quite annoying.
RealWorld Graphics - Jun 19 2012 at 4:43am Copy Link
Tore Hoyem Thanks.
If you do implement a vector editor, I hope vector format importing will also be supported in some form.

Other than that, I've already made some fun icons for use with True Launch Bar :)

a a - If you do implement a vector editor, I hope vector format importing will also be supported in some form.

+1 for vector import. There are several icon packs available that come with vector sources (eg. in .ai format). It would be great if these (particularly .ai) could be imported into RWIE with layers intact.

Amit Hi,

Is function of making an .icl file from multiple individual .ico files, there in realworld editor ?

Can it also scan for icon files and other resource files in a drive or whole computer ?

Nov 11 2012 at 12:33am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér Yes, you can create a new .icl file and then for example drag .ico files from your file manager and drop them on the sub-window with icon list (lower part of the window) to add them to the .icl file.

There are no specialized scanning functions, but in the Batch section, you can run operations on folders with sub-folders. So, if you for example select the "Extract icons" batch operation and drag and drop the whole C:\ drive on the application window, it will effectively find and extract all icons from .dll and other executable files on C:\. Alternatively, you can use "Extract images from icons" and that will search for all .ico files and extract individual images as .png files.

If you just want to find .ico files on your computer, you do not need any specialized program - simply searching for *.ico in Windows Explorer will do the job.

All functions are enabled in the evaluation version, so feel free to test them.
RealWorld Graphics - Nov 11 2012 at 1:54am Copy Link
Stephen Kunkel Highly recommended! Vlastimil, the developer, is highly responsive and helpful on the forums. He has been helping me figure out how to do some batch-work that requires some customized scripting. The batch engine is quite robust. I've pushed jobs of up to 10,000 files through it, and it has never choked. RWIE is able to do the standard draw-an-icon work, but it can also build icons from libraries of component parts. Here is a screenshot of me making an icon from a user-submitted library RWIE can also create 3D objects. If there is a downside it is that the more powerful features have a steep learning curve. There are several tutorial videos though--so you can go at your own pace. Also, it is built as a modular application, so you can just use the components that you need.

Can't say enough good things about the app or the developer. I don't know if RWIE is a returning offer here on BDJ, or a "one-timer" This is the first time Iv'e noticed it. I recommend you get it while you can.

Also, will .ai import with layers be supported ?
Nov 12 2012 at 11:57am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér If everything goes well, a beta version with vectors should be available next month. The final version will take more time as I am also changing part of the 3D stuff and turned out to be a bit of a pain.

I am not planning .ai support right now, maybe as a plug-in later. Initially, the only importable vectors will be vector masks from .psd files.

Nov 14 2012 at 6:42am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér You can convert .jpg files to .ico, but because the .jpg format does not support transparency and it is a lossy format, you may in some cases need to adjust the image before conversion as demonstrated in the above tutorial.

Nov 14 2012 at 9:53am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér I currently do not have Ubuntu installed, so I cannot verify it, but Linux distros usually use normal image formats like .png for icons. You can use any image editor to make .png files (including RWIE, but you will only use it as a normal image editor, without the specialized icon-related functions).

William Gorman I still use an old Windows 3.0 icon designer program that I now see the need to update. However, this program created Icon Libraries with the extension ".il" and not the currently more common ".icl." Can your program either convert the IL libraries to your standard ICL library or is their something else that can be done to preserve the thousands of icons accumulated over the last 22 years?

Vlastimil Milér Mike: Using .png as a source file is much better than using .jpg.

William: I am sorry, I have never heard about .il files. However, there used to be a 16-bit flavor of .icl and maybe it was compatible with .il. Maybe it would be a good idea to download the application and test if an .il file can be opened before buying it.

William Gorman In my case each icon does not have an individual identity format like .ico. They are all contained within an IL library. You can copy each icon and then paste it into, say, InfanView and then save it as an ICO icon file.

You can change the format from IL to ICL simply by changing the letter in Windows Explorer and then open it in a program like Icon Ripper. Other programs such as IconEdit 7.04 do not recognize the changed format of ICL and will not open the library.

DroidLuvr I want to say thank you for offering this today! I have wanted this program forever, and have used your free online icon creator because the price was just too steep for the occasional use I need...

However, I have found the online site so wonderful, I am thrilled to hear all the comments from users who give such high marks to the program and the developer personally! I hope I won't need much support, but I love to know it's there!!

A definite thumbs up and purchase from me today!!

Nico Westerdale Great News! RealWorld Graphics has agreed to extend this deal for another day - Enjoy!

William Gorman Good news! I tried the program and it opens "IL" extension icon libraries so they can be edited. I bought the program and now have access to several thousand icons accumulated over the last 23 years since I bought my first icon designer program for Windows 3.0. I expect to update many for current use in Windows 7 Professional with Real World Icon Designer.

DrTeeth It's been a loooong time since an update/upgrade. Nothing since I purchased in Sept 2011 IIRC - not good.

Any news when the next one can be expected?
Apr 12 2013 at 12:28am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér Yes, it is taking more time than I have expected. Right now, you can get an early preview of the next version with some functions working at

Michael R. Any plans of offering other Rw-products here?

Vlastimil Milér The only other paid software is RealWorld Photos (others are freeware). Maybe it will be worth a try. I am not sure how BDJ users would react to it. It has a couple of unique features, but there are so many other photo-editing and image batch processing applications...

erioforo I am waiting for RealWorld Photos on BDJ !!! RealWorld are very good products indeed but I am already a registered and satisfied user of Icon Editor. If RealWordl Phots will be on BDJ I'll purchase it :-)

DrTeeth Any ETA for the next version please?
Aug 3 2014 at 6:36am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér I seem to be unable to resist the temptation to add just one more function and so the date keeps getting pushed back. The current preview is already usable and there will be more previews in the next weeks. If the current preview lacks a feature you would like to have right now, just let me know and I'll do my best to include it in the next preview so you can use it asap.

Bruce One thing I have looked for on the PC scene is a way to paste icon graphics, and short phrase onto folders. So that you can still see it is a folder - - but now it will be more easily identified as what folder because it has a name or representative graphic on top of the folder.
There are a couple of tools which do this on the Mac, but haven't found a simple one for PC. Example on Mac is FolderBrander by Yellow Mug Software.

Is this possible with RWIE?
Aug 3 2014 at 5:43pm Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér It is currently not there, but you can customize a folder by putting an ico file inside and create a tiny text file called desktop.ini with 3 lines of text - here is more details:
(I can include this feature in the future version if there is a lot of interest.)

To obtain the initial folder icon use the "Icon from application" wizard on the "Create" page.

fpi fpi RealWorld Icon Editor version 2010.1 seem to be an old four years version.
No information about a Windows 8 or 8.1 compatibility!
A next update possible?
Aug 4 2014 at 1:28am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér There was no change in the .ico format since Windows Vista. So you can do icons for Win8 with the current version. The software itself has a minor redrawing problem on 64-bit editions of Windows (all versions). Otherwise W8 is fine. At the end of the description above is a link to a preview of the next version, where this problem is fixed. The preview also supports vector layers, which may be handy if you want to quickly do icons in Win8 "modern UI" style.

fpi fpi Buyers of your current promotional offer, will they receive a free upgrade?
Or what will be the cost for that upcoming upgrade?
A idea for the waiting time, before that next upgrade?
Aug 4 2014 at 1:52am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér Yes, it will be a free upgrade for all current owners of the license. Date is hard to predict, but there is a public preview and if there is a specific function you want ASAP, I'll do my best to include that in the next preview.
RealWorld Graphics - Aug 4 2014 at 2:09am Copy Link
fpi fpi About the license, it includes a lifetime updates or lifetime upgrades or nothing ?
Or again, do you sell updates or upgrades to customer ?
Aug 4 2014 at 2:51am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér Only the latest version gets updates and they are always free. Upgrades are free for *at least* 5 years since purchase. After that time, I may sell upgrades if I see a reason for it (for example if I increase the price or add a lot of new functionality).

fpi fpi Thanks you for your promotion and your replies
Additionally, I feel enjoy some summer sun Czech Republic.
This is the second program that I buy to facilitate editing icons.
The history of your program since 2005, has also reassured me.
The development seems to evolve regularly.
Aug 4 2014 at 4:12am Copy Link
Vlastimil Milér Yeah, the weather has been good this summer, not too hot and not too cold here in CR. Since you'll now have 2 icon editors and seem to take icon creation seriously, I'd be delighted if you could provide any feedback (features you are missing, annoyances encountered, ideas for improvement, etc.) when you have time.

Pedro Laurent I am not getting the special price for the software instead of $24.92 it's $64.08?
Aug 4 2014 at 5:30am Copy Link
Constantin Florea @Pedro Laurent - The value of $64.08 is the value of the coupon code. The total price is not shown in the shopping cart.

So: $89 (regular price) - $64.08 = $24.92 (total discounted price)
