How Bradicon works

Since 2007, Bradicon has been converting image file to icons. It's free to use, and requires no installation — all you have to do is upload your image! An icon resource is created, which can be used as a shortcut, for a program, or as a favicon. You can use it as you would any other icon.

A Badicon icon resource contains three or five resolutions: 48x48, 32x32, and 16x16 (as well as 128x128 and 256x256). So however you use your icon, the system will automatically choose the appropriate size.

Icons can be created from a number of popular image format. JPGs, Gifs, PNGs, and BMPs can all be converted to icons, and if your image is partially transparent, Bradicon will preserve that transparency in the icon file it creates.

There are limits — images that are too large will exceed the memory alloted by the web server, and icon creation will fail. But just resize your image and trying again.

Bradicon provides a niche service. Though its potential audience is limitted, we strive to provide a useful and painless service to its visitors. Again, Bradicon is also completely free to use; it is a web-based service and requires no download, barring that of your icon.
