Ability to create your own Icon Themes
It is very simple to create your own Icon Themes. The procedure is similar to that used when changing icons. Bee Icons will help gather icons for your theme from anywhere in your computer into one icon library file (*.icl) and will generate a preview of the icons used in your theme.
To open a theme or to change an icon you can drop the necessary file onto the main window of the program. This feature is especially convenient during the creation of a new icon theme.
Bee Icons supports the following icon theme formats:
IconPackager Themes. Bee Icons doesn't support IconPackager themes but you can still use them. Icon Translate is a freeware utility that will convert Icon Packager Themes (*.iptheme) to the *.iconset format, which Bee Icons can then read. Please download Icon Translate here.
Ability to change individual folders and disk icons
You can make your work easier and become more productive by selectively changing folder or disk icons. For example, if a folder or disk has a uniquely recognizable icon it is quicker to find it at a glance. See the example. The new icon can indicate the specific folders purpose or content. (My Documents, My Pictures, etc. are examples of folder icons that can be easily recognized).
Ability to restore standard icons
If you ever want to return to the standard icons, Bee Icons will do it for you.
Integration with AwIcons
AwIcons is the most powerful icons editor imaginable, containing all the tools you need to create graphically rich icons in one package. If you have AwIcons, you will have ability to edit icons directly from Bee Icons.
