Easy as can be and fully functional! - OK, so I took the chance with the $13 bucks to buy this. I had been looking for a simple program to convert images to icons, and this is it! I now have my disk icons on my desktop appearing as images of MY choosing (instead of the ugly default ones), and folders on my desktop now reflect their contents with images that are descriptive of what they contain. Usage is as easy as dropping an image into the box in the program, then pressing the button for what type of icon you want. Simple. You can also convert icons to images in a number of formats. To change an icon for a folder or disk, right click the item and "Get Info". Command-C the icon you want to use, then click the icon at the top of the "Get Info" window to highlight, and Command-V. All done! Very nice little program, though it could be a bit cheaper!
Doesn`t Work, Want my money back - It Doesn't Work, Want my money back !!!!!! If you have a image (even in the normals formats like JPG or PNG) and want to convert to ICNS, it won't do it right. Will create a icns file, but if you click in "Get Info" on the created ICNS or Command+C this file, and Command-V in any folder, you will see that the ICNS file is corrupted. Also... If you want to the oposite, convert a ICNS file, to image like PNG or Giff, you have first to convert in to a folder, and then to the format that you want. US$13,00 for this..... Want my money back now.

Threw away a dollar, went back to the free version from the developer's site - I tried to convert a png to an icns and it didn't work properly. The new icon doesn't appear on the upper left corner, where normally you could copy it and then paste it to whatever application info window you want. It still works correclty in the free version from the site, so I'm just going to stick with that one.
ZERO FUNCTIONALITY-Priced outrageous. - There is hardly any feature in this app and I can say its just worth a buck and I do not recommend anyone to purchase this except if you just want to create an icon image(renamed extension) of any picture.It is just like renaming a filename for e.g. .jpg to .icns.I purchased this to create icons for my iPad and iPhone apps, all it did was resized the image and renamed it. This is definitely not worth the money and it has ZERO functionality. There are free tools which does the same and more what this app does and I cannot understand based on what functionalities the developer has priced it so outrageously. I think such low quality products must not be in production which seriously wastes consumers money and time. Needs a lot of design change(if possible) and lot of functionality for this price.
Super Easy - It works for me! I'm not a power user and all I wanted was a simple way to take graphics and make icons for a few things I made in applescript. Its a drag n drop interface. Drag the photo or graphic into the window, and then you can drag your app or whatever you want the icon on into the preview to apply your icon. I'm a little divided on the price, I suspect that there are free programs to do the same thing… but on the other hand the polished interface and ease of use are nice for just over the cost of two fancy coffees.
Simple & Effective - After just reformatting my mac I have been using the Mac App Store version of the app to personalize my folders. It works perfectly every time i use it whether its for folders, movie files, etc. My Mac looks great thanks to this app.
Liking it Better and Better - Bought the pro version and couldn't figure out how to use it…because it was too simple. I tried to complicate it. The directions say to drag the image onto the square, and then drag the file or app or alias on the square. Same square!! I love the app, but the directions could be a little more detailed for those of us who just naturally make things difficult. Great App!
