There are all kinds of graphic manipulation tools out there. Clean up red eye in your photos. Create elaborate logos for stationery. The list goes on, with an almost limitless list of apps to do serious editing to your images. Most of these are aimed at relatively larger-sized images, whether it's your vacation photos or your website. But what about the smallest sized images we interact with regularly?

PixelToolbox is a specialized graphics editor for use in creating and tweaking desktop graphics for Windows. You can build your own icons, cursors, and wallpaper tiles, or edit existing ones. Because it's designed to manipulate these little files, it gives you a big enough grid to work on so that you can actually see what you're doing. That's a lot easier than working in Photoshop with a 600% zoom. There's a full complement of tools to use, with the standard drawing and painting tools like pencil, brush, eraser, and more. There are several canned patterns and color palettes so that you'll be up and running in no time.

PixelToolbox is a Windows app and will run under Win95, NT, or anything later. Not demanding in its hardware requirements, it'll do its thing on a Pentium II-200MHz with only 32MB of RAM.
