Features In Depth

Axialis IconGenerator is an icon production tool for professional developers, UI designers and illustrators. It lets you create icons in almost all existing formats, vectors and bitmaps, from a large database of icon sets made by professional graphic designers.

The database, which is automatically updated via Internet, contains a large variety of icons in vector format. Using IconGenerator, you can search and select the icons you need, customize them and create files for your projects in vector or bitmap formats. Various icon sets are provided with different styles and specifications.

A fully Integrated Workspace

Generating icons takes only a few seconds: First choose an icon set, then select icons and overlays, optionally customize them and generate the icon files in one batch operation (Learn More).

Generate Vector & Bitmap Icons

Generate all formats of vector and bitmap icons in minutes. Supported vector formats are SVG, XAML, PDF, EPS, PS. You can also generate bitmap images at all standard and custom sizes in PNG, BMP, JPEG. Windows ICO and Mac ICNS formats are also supported (Learn More).

Customize Icons With Overlays

Various overlay images are provided in each icon set. They let you illustrate actions or states associated to an icon such as "add", "remove", "edit" etc. Using IconGenerator you can apply overlays to an icon in a few clicks:

Overlays can be placed at 4 different positions:

Colorize Icons

Colorizing icons can be useful to enhance their visibility (on a dark background for example) or to be consistent with a user interface theme. Depending of the icon set style, two colorization modes are available: monochrome or shaded.

In Monochrome Colorization mode, the whole icon is colorized with a unique color which is exactly the one you selected. Dark or medium colors are replaced. White and light colors are set to transparent. See below how Axialis Flat Pro 2017 is colorized:

In Shaded Colorization mode, the icon is colorized keeping the original shades of grey. This applies to icons using shaded colors without borders or outlines. See below how "Axialis Flat Design" is colorized:

Overlays can be colorized separately to create more dynamic visual effects:

Pixel-perfect Icon Sets

For pixel-perfect results, icons are aligned on a fixed grid. This avoids blurry lines when rendering icons at small sizes.

Most of icon sets, designed for use in general projects, contain only one alignment grid. For example, Axialis Line Design icons are aligned on a 21x21 grid:

For use in Ribbons or Toolbars, some sets contain 2 different grids for large and small icons. For example, Axialis Flat Pro 2017 contains icons aligned on 16x16 and 32x32 grids:

The generated icons give a pixel-perfect result in ribbon-based user interfaces:
