If you use Macromedia® Freehand® to create your images, here is how to work with Axialis IconWorkshop™ to create icons.

Transferring an Image from Macromedia Freehand® to Create an Icon

1. Axialis IconWorkshop™ supports the PNG image format with Transparency. In Macromedia® Freehand®, save your image to a PNG file.

2. In IconWorkshop™, choose "File/Open", browse your folders and select your file (Windows® standard dialog box).

- or -

Choose "File/New/File Explorer" or press Ctrl+E. A built-in Axialis file explorer window opens. Browse your disks, see the thumbnail preview and double-click the image file you wish to open.

- or -

In the Recently Used zone (in the main toolbar), type the full pathname of the image file you wish to open then hit Enter.

3. The image file opens in a document window. Its contents appears automatically in the main area. If the image contains transparency, it has been kept (see the chessboard texture). Now you can create an icon from this image (see Step 2 of topic Create an Icon from an Image File).
