[center]Homebrew Icon Generator (HIG) is a tool for creating simple Homebrew icons. All you can do right now is change the background color, but this is a VERY EARLY VERSION, so I hope to have other features.[/center]

[center]What do the buttons do?
Upper Left: Saves Icon (icon####.png)
Upper Right: Input Text (Use # for linebreaks, use \# for #)
Lower Left: Left click to choose color, right click for random color
Lower right: Hide icons (icons are never shown in output)

Problems
Only tested on Windows (probably won't work on WINE)
May not work correctly on some machines (due to splash screen for text input)

NOTE
Icons are created with a random number (icon####.png). The program checks to see that the file doesn't exist, so having a large amount in the directory will cause saving to take longer. Having 9999 icons in the directory will probably cause the program or your computer to crash. I've tested it with about 200 icons in the directory. Don't push it.[/center]

[center]What's the point of this program? It seems useless.[/center]
[center]There are many matching sets of homebrew icons out on the internet, but they never seem to have every single Homebrew app. These are just simple icons for people who want everything to match. Alternatively, you could just use this for Homebrew apps which do not have their own icon.[/center]

[center]How do I use the icons?[/center]
[center]I would hope you already know how to do that, but rename your old "icon.png" to "icon_bak.png" and copy your new icon into the app's folder. Then name it "icon.png"[/center]

Very useful!
Can u also make one/add a feature for DSHomebrew icons? (they must be 32x32 and a total of 16 colors)

Edit:

Works perfectly:

It is useful, but I should do it with photoshop.

In photoshop you can at least place text.

I usually translate English to Dutch to English to understand you, but I don't get this sentence.

"In Photoshop kan je op z'n minst ook tekst plaatsen."?
In that case, Mason's App is just for text.

This tool is just for simple icons. I'll probably add the ability to change the text color, size, and font, and maybe make it so you can import an image for a background, but that's about it.
