Pic2Icon 1.3

Drag and drop based OS X application designed to make it very simple to generate beautiful looking 128x128 thumb icons for your pictures
Pic2Icon is a free and streamlined OS X utility that makes it possible to effortlessly and rapidly generate thumbnail icons for of any image on your Mac’s hard drive.

The image thumbnails have been implemented by Apple to help users browsing a picture folder to identify the images easier and quicker without having to open each and every one of them.

Drag and drop based thumbnail icon generator

Thus, in order to use Pic2Icon to create thumbnail icons for an image or a collection of images, you just have to drag and drop it or them onto the app's interface and it will automatically start generating the thumbs on its own.

Automatically adds the generated thumbs to the original images

Moreover, all created thumbnails icons will be instantly applied to the dropped pictures and, thus, once the thumb generation process has ended, you will be able to browse your image collection and enjoy the benefits of having thumbnails for all of them.

Support for creating anti-aliased thumbnails

Furthermore, from the Anti-aliasing tab of Pic2Icon's main window, you can easily enable and adjust the anti-aliasing option for preventing the generated thumbnail images to have jagged margins.

Thus, you can choose between low and high anti-aliasing settings, but you have to keep in mind that the high anti-aliasing option might produce blurry images.

Generate thumb icons with drop shadows

Additionally, the Settings tab enables you to configure Pic2Icon to add a drop shadow to all generated thumbs and to automatically retain the modification date of all processed files.

In addition, you can also setup Pic2Icon to automatically draw a custom colored 1 pixel border around the generated thumbnail.

Easy and intuitive image thumb maker

All in all, the Pic2Icon app is a simple and straightforward thumbnail icon generator for making sure that all images on your hard drives have their own thumbs.
