A Snapshot is an image created automatically by IconWorkshop™ to show one or several icons (with embedded formats) on a decorated background. Creating a Snapshot Picture of your icons may be useful to make a visual archive of your icons, illustrate a website or just promote your work.

Three kinds of snapshots are available:

Detailed snapshot of one icon - The icon image formats are displayed in one raw.

Detailed snapshot of several icons - One icon per raw, several images per icon.

Quick/Thumbnail snapshot of several icons - Only one image per icon, several icons per raw.
