Icon2Image 1.1.5 reviewDownload
Icon2Image is a contextual menu plug-in that you use to convert file, folder and disk icons into images.
Icon2Image is a contextual menu plug-in that you use to convert file, folder and disk icons into images. Any image format supported by your installed version of Quicktime is available for conversion.
Once the plug-in is installed (directions for installation are below) simply "Control-click" on items in the Finder to display the menu. ("Control-click" means that you hold the "control" key down as you mouse-down on an item.) With the menu displayed select a menu item named after the resulting image file to perform the conversion.
Images are saved in the "Icon2Image" folder, created in the Documents folder of your home directory. You can use the menu item "Go to Icon2Image folder..." to quickly access the images.
Each menu item below the "Go to Icon2Image folder..." item displays the name of the image file created, as well as the description of the file type (as provided by Quicktime).
For example, if you selected the "Desktop.bmp (BMP)" menu item in the sample menu above, then Icon2Image would create an image file in the "BMP" format named "Desktop.bmp" in the "Icon2Image" folder of your Documents folder.
Note that the menu may look different on your Mac. The menu items are determined by the Quicktime compressors installed on your system.
To install: Simply place the plug-in into your "Contextual Menu Items" folder located in one of the following locations:
/Libray/Contextual Menu Items
In this location the plug-in will be accessible to all users.
~/Library/Contextual Menu Items (i.e. home directory Library)
In this location the plug-in will be accessible to just you.
Create the "Contextual Menu Items" folder if necessary.
Then logout of your account and back in to load the plug-in.
The demo is fully functioning except that images are saved in reduced sizes (96x96) rather than full sizes (128x128), and the menu has a "Register..." menu item (see picture of menu below).
The icon size can now be specified using an editable text field (in addition to a slider control).
