icomancer is a folder icons composer application based on templates. Your selections of folder template, color, texture and style, plus any image you want to craft, are the elements used by icomancer to build your icons.

No. There's no editing capability for icomancer, at least not in the current build.

icomancer is made to let you assign icons to your folders in ways you haven't experienced before, giving you full control on what you want your folders to look like.

icomancer is free for personal and commercial use as long as you are an individual or a small-sized company (with up to 10 employees). Companies with more than 10 employees need to get a Corporate License Pack in order to use icomancer.

icomancer's functionality isn't limited for any version. You can craft any image as icon, imbue any icon to any folder or shortcut, copy icons to your collections and download some content from our galleries.

Please note that online functions (submit or download) require you to create a free account in our server.

The standard version gives you access to premium content created by our design department. New templates, color palettes, texture sets and add-on icons are released for standard users, and the creations they share with our community are only available for download by other standard users.

In short: the free version allows you to get basic content packages, and the standard version gives you premium content packages.

icomancer is a Windows Forms application based on Microsoft's .net Framework 4. Thus, the supported OSs are: Windows 7, Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Vista Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 3.

icomancer is designed as a 32 bit application, so it will run seamlessly on 64 bit CPUs. And yes, due to the nature of its components, icomancer support multiple cores.

Not really. But here are some tips:

Recommended minimum for Windows XP: 1GHz Atom CPU with 512 MB of system RAM.

Recommended minimum for Vista & Seven: 1GHz Dual Core Atom CPU with 1GB of system RAM.

Hyper Threaded CPUs (double processing threads) are preferred, as they increase processing performance.

We've made some tests and got icomancer running at a decent speed with a 500 Mhz Pentium II CPU with 384 MB of system RAM.

But we noticed better performance with AMD CPUs (Athlon X2, X4 and Sempron X6).

Disk space requriements: icomancer generates lots of temporary files for icon composition. They're purged on every run, but the space needed to properly run can be about 100 MB, depending on how much templates, colors, textures and add-on icons you have installed.
