Favicon is a special Windows bitmap icon format the is now in common us on the world wide web. These are the small icons that are frequently shown next to the http:... web address.

Virtual Printers For Electronic Publishing (e.g. standard Web banner sizes, and OS X standard Icon/Button size):

The Page Setup palette shows use of the 128x128 Icon size for drawing a photo-realistic icon suitable for OS X's Dock. The screen shot shows the designer is using Points for the scale, and has the rulers enabled. The stepper control in the ruler's upper left corner allows quick changing of the tick mark intervals on the rulers.

Dual Representation TIFF:

The new standards for icon graphics for Mac OS X Leopard, Snow Leopard and newer specifies saving application graphics in a dual representation TIFF format. The two encapsulated images cover a wider dynamic range of screen resolution. This is especially important for the newer "high definition" MacBook screens. EazyDraw now has support for this format, simply check one check box and your graphics will be compliant and look better on the new screens.

Export to the ICNS format:

Export full icon families in the Mac ICNS format. These may be installed as OS X badges or icons for files and folders. The family of images provide optimum icon quality for all necessary display sizes.

Professional Color Gradients (using OS X's advanced image compositing capability):

The gradient fill palette is shown lower right. There are many geometries available, (spot, egg, conical, oriented, positioned,...) gradients. The gradient for the tablets shinny surface is a Highlight Composite (14 different composite algorithms available-Source Over, Highlight, XOR, Plus Darker, ...). Of course you can use transparency with the gradient colors.

Windows Icons

ICO is the windows icon format. This is a supported export format for EazyDraw. You can design with the proper color tables which are provided as part of the EazyDraw application. You draw in vector but export as bitmap with full control over color table, bits per pixel, image size, and transparency (for the newer 32 bit XP windows formats). EazyDraw provides a perfect bridge from a Mac-Design to Windows-Usage.

Proper Scale

You can draw in Points, the proper scale for icon design. No need to "fake" a custom paper size or involve a printer driver in the work flow. Save your EazyDraw native XML vectors as the master and publish direct to the desired electronic file, ready for the web or your application's user interface. All of EazyDraw's icons for our web site and the application were produced exclusively with a standard shipping version of EazyDraw.
