Familiar icons on your desktop play a very important role. They are visual aids for you to not waste too much time and get work done faster. Just imagine if you had 20 folders and the ‘My Computer’ shortcut was also present and all had the same icons on the desktop. You would probably at least waste up-to 2-3 seconds every time you wanted to open a particular shortcut.
Icons with their shortcuts usually save us time. It might seem insignificant but I reckon that for every 2 hours on the computer you probably end up saving up to 3-5 minutes. The time saving aspect is even more prominent for someone multitasking.
This can be quite relevant to your website/ blog as icons or images often help your regular readers to get oriented. I came across this neat website which helps you create and customize some icons and then download them for your personal use.
- Iconizer allowed create customized and stylized icons. Even though there are many website which might have a lot many more icons to choose from but this website allows you make changes to the original icon you have chosen.
- I could change the foreground and background color of the icon image.
- I could also select its width and height in pixel units.
- Iconizer also has the option of you generating the icon image in GIF, JPEG, PNG, BMP and ICO.
I have once previously reviewed a internet service which helps you create customized favicons but I liked Iconizer as I think it allows me a lot more versatility.
Go ahead and look up Iconizer and let me know if you liked playing around and generating new icons for your desktop or even your website to give it just that extra sense of familiar feel.
