I would love to use SCION, but it has an odd behavior.

If I open the application, make my changes, then save, I can save the icon.

If, however, I want to create another icon, i cannot save it; I must exit the program and start it over. Similarly, if I decide to clear my changes and start over ('New'), I cannot save my work.

Any hopes? I'm offering to do the free work to fix it if that would be of help.

SCION is a ClearWin+ application and as such illustrates what can be achieved using ClearWin+. But it's not an up-to-date image editor and there are no plans to do any further work on it.

Plato provides better image editing facilities but, there again, Plato image editing is not a match for other free image editors that are available on the internet.

I tend to use either Microsoft Paint or Visual Studio for image editing but others may have better recommendations.

Paul, thanks for that. I'll look elsewhere.

There really isn't any. Plato has an icon editor. But there are limitations (HELP file has a good description).

I downloaded and am happy with the Greenfish Icon Editor (at http://greenfishsoftware.org/). It is pretty easy to use; it took me a while to get used to the user interface. It's a lot like Adobe Photoshop or Gimp, but trimmed down so a lot easier to use. It has layer capability, which I like. The price is perfect (zero).
