The Iconfactory’s filter for constructing icons, IconBuilder has been re-designed from the ground up in Cocoa for unprecedented power and flexibility, and still sports many of the features that users have come to know and expect. The filter also offers a host of new features that icon artists everywhere will appreciate. Here is a highlight of just some of the new features that IconBuilder 8.0 has to offer:
