16x16 v 32x32 pixel icon (.ico)
Posted on 2006-04-30
For a Delphi application, I created a 16x16 pixels icon (.ico). One of 32x32 would be reduced to 16x16 automatically and all detail would get lost then. However, when the application runs and while switching between programs (on Windows XP) using ALT+Tab, so that the running programs' icons are shown, the 16x16 one of my application is automatically turned into a 32x32 one, which doesn't look good at all either, especially not between the other ones which are perfectly sharp and 32x32 pixel icons *not* converted from 16x16. How do they do that?
