Nice icon. I wish I had that as a real image. Probably not something you blurt out every day, but from time to time it might be nice to grab that little picture and use it for something else. IconGrabber can help you do just that.

There's nothing fancy about this tool—in fact, it doesn't even really have a GUI. Fire it up, and is just gives you a Finder window to use to browse to the file whose icon you want to grab. Pick your file, and then save the icon wherever you want, even choosing a size and format you want, including all web-supported formats, as well as TIFF and BMP. Or if you prefer, just drag your file onto this app's icon and go from there.

IconGrabber is a free download. It's a Mac application, and should run on systems with OS X 10.3 and later.

  1. Very nice program. I often see cool icons and wish i could have the eps or illustrator vector file so i can enlarge them for use on websites.

    This program is great for enlarging icons when you like the look of the icon as is (without wanting to edit it).

    Thanks for this!

    This is a great blog. I tune in almost daily to see what goodies you have in store.
