Can you ever have enough icons? These little pictures are everywhere. If you're building websites or desktop apps, and happen to be an artist, then you're good to go. If, however, you're more focused on the coding or the business behind it all, then drawing those cute little pictures may be something outside of your comfort zone. That's where a tool like SimplyIcon comes in handy.

With SimplyIcon, you take an existing picture—an image created by someone else who has the time and talent to do these things—and turn it into an icon. Or several icons actually. Just drag your image and drop it on the application window, and it will convert it into an icon, in several popular sizes. It's going to work best for you if you start with a square picture, since that's where it's going to end up, but you've got to admit it's a lot easier to grab a square selection out of an image than to create the whole thing yourself.

SimplyIcon is a free download. It's a Windows application.
