If You Love Icons…

September 26, 2011

If you love icons, then you need to add We Love Icons to your collection. An icon is typically used to serve as a quick, intuitive visual representation to identify a software program or web site. We usually click on icons on our desktop or menus to launch programs or to get to a web site. Icons can also be used for presentations, blogging, desktop publishing, etc…

Approximately a year ago I featured an article, An Icon Search Engine That Helps You Find FREE Icons. Recently, I did some follow-up to determine if there was anything new out there and this is how I came across We Love Icons.

We Love Icons

The sole purpose of We Love Icons is to provide you with ONE place to go to find links to the BEST freeware desktop icons on earth. Not only does the site feature icons, it also features a How To section which is a collection of articles and apps to help you work with and learn about icons.

An Icon Search Engine That Helps You Find FREE Icons

October 1, 2010

No it is not National Icon Week… I know this is my second article about icons within 2 days but a really nice icon search engine was brought to my attention as a result of yesterday’s article (titled: How To Find Icons Hidden Inside of Files) that I want to share with you. Following yesterday’s article the author of the blog, Word Dreams pointed me to another source for icons called FindIcons.com. I initially thought I had done a review on this site; however, I discovered FindIcons.com was a new one to me.

Find Icons

FindIcons.com has a largest free icon collections, a better search filtering & matching system and more output options. Also, we track every search query and manually adjust the results according to the average ratings set by the search results from other users. And we understand that by searching you can’t categorize every icon you found. So we created a handy User Set tool to allow you group frequently used icons in your personal Favorites box which can be accessed 24/7 from anywhere. Now you will have an alternative option to having to put favorite icons into folders on your hard drive.

Another nice feature that I have not seen at the other icon sites is the ability to browse icon packs (batches of icons designed with a specific interest in mind).

Icon Packs

Some other features are a converter, ability to upload icons, search by tag and an “Excite” me link that will surprise you with a random listing of icons. Findicons.com claims to maintain a database of close to 300,000 icons. A BIG THANK YOU to Word Dreams for this one!

Online Royalty Free Public Domain Clip Art

September 13, 2010

In the past here at What’s On My PC I have provided links to sites that feature FREE clipart. For example WP Clipart and Open Clipart Library are a couple of my favorite sources for FREE clipart.

Today I added another clipart site to my collection, called Clker.com, that I would like to share with you.

Clker.com

Clker.com is an online sharing service where users share free public domain vector cliparts, or share public domain photos and derive vector cliparts from those photos using clker’s online tracer.

Great Source of High Quality Icons and Icon Tools

August 7, 2010

I recently posted the article, “Over 31,100 Icons for Windows, Mac and Linux” ; which was very well received.  Today I came across another awesome site called SOFTICONS which offers a boat load of icons in a variety of categories from Animals to TV & Movie icons; PLUS, the site offers two awesome icon tools to create your own icons.

Softicons

The icons at SOFTICONS are of very high quality.  Here is an example of a motherboard icon (created by VisualPharm) at SOFTICONS

Motherboard Sample

The really “cool factor” with SOFTICONS is that a section of the site is devoted to icon tools.

Favicon Generator

Favicon Generator, is an online (cloud app) that gives you the ability to create a favicon for your website from a regular image (.png, .jpg, .gif, .bmp).

Image to Icon Converter

Image to Icon Converter is also an online (cloud app) that gives you the ability to create an icon from image (.png, .jpg, .gif, .bmp).

Over 31,100 Icons for Windows, Mac and Linux

July 31, 2010

Whenever I want to customize the appearance of my PC, fancy up a document, make a powerpoint slide shine, or enhance a blog article I often use icons. Yes, the same type of icons (but only better) that you see on your computer’s desktop. Icons are excellent graphic enhancements and the professionally crafted icons often are three dimensional in appearance.

An excellent resource for icons is the web site Icon Archive. Currently the site boasts an archive of over 31,100 icons in 1097 sets from 260 different authors. The majority of the icons I explored can be used for non-commercial purposes, such as what I mentioned previously. You will find that these icons are of professional quality and there is something there for just about any subject you can think of.

How good are these icons?  Here is an example:
