problems with creating an icon for my application

Hi experts,


I have here a 16 colours Bitmap graphic file which I would like to use as program icon in one
of my own applications.

With the help of the program "Graphic Workshop Professional" I converted this 16 colour bitmap
to an *.ico Icon file.

After loading this *.ico file with Graphic Workshop Professional I noticed that some portions of the graphic
file are missing. During the conversion from *.bmp to *.ico the lower half of the graphic file has been cut.


Do you know a way how I can manipulate the bitmap file so I can use it as program icon?

Hi there,

thank you for your feedback.

Your reply is not clear to me so I kindly ask for some more input.

I meanwhile installed Michelangelo as you suggested.

I noticed that with this program I can't convert *.bmp to *.ico files.

With Michelangelo I can only open *.ico files. In this specific situation it does not help, because
in the *.ico file there are missing some portion in comparison with the original *.bmp file.
I need some advice which help me to convert the bitmap file to a program icon file.

copy it to clipboard from there
