Sometimes you want to create your own icons from scratch or simply want to modify other existing icons. These scenarios are where Actipro Icons Elements come into play.
Actipro Icons Elements is a set of over 2,700 overlay icons (see our preview page), all in the Office 2010 style, that can be combined with any other custom or third-party icon to give new meaning to the icon. The overlays can be simple adornments or can represent various states/actions.
For instance, take an image icon and add a hand "element" overlay from this bundle on top of it to create an image share icon. The possibilities are endless.
When comparing icon sets with other competitors, it's extremely important to look closely at the quality of the icons at the smaller pixel sizes (such as 32x32 and 16x16), since a majority of practical icon usage is at those resolutions.
Here's where our product stands out. Most icon sets are designed for 256x256 size and then are just scaled down to smaller sizes. As any graphics designer will tell you, once you scale down an image like this, the result is a very poor quality image that is full of anti-aliasing and a has a general lack of clarity.
Actipro Icons Elements are different. Every single one of our icons has been "cleaned up" following scaling, and a good amount of extra work has been done in some cases to get icons looking spectacular in the smaller sizes. We fully encourage you to compare the quality of our icons with competitors.
Any developers who work on the user interface portion of a project that uses Actipro Icons Elements require a license. Developers who do not work on the user interfaces do NOT require licenses. Site licenses that cover all developers at a physical location, and Enterprise licenses that cover all developers in an organization regardless of location are available options.
Once the proper number of developer licenses for the product have been procured, you may include the Actipro Icons Elements royalty-free in your applications.
