Windows Icon Save Options

 

These options determine how PMView saves Windows Icons.

 

Size This lets you select the size of the icon. Icons saved by PMView are always square, so the value you set here will represent both the width and height. For instance "32" means that a "32x32" icon will be generated.

 

Color Type This lets you select the color depth and palette type used for the icon.

256 colors, System palette This will save the icon with 256 colors. The icon will only use colors in Windows' system palette.

Deep color (24-bit) This will save the icon with full color information.
