Yes! That's great news! I'll download it and install it this weekend.
I have been using Icaros Desktop 2.0.3 so this will be a nice upgrade!

Origami,

Sorry for the misinformation. Copy the program to your 'C' directory or cd to the directory containing the program and issue commands there. It works for me. I'll post source code tomorrow after a little cleanup so you can see what it does.

The next revision will do better checking of paths and filenames as well as remove the 'Ic0n' chunk. For example, Multiview can open these Png images after extracting from an icon, but it fails to save due to the Ic0n data! That's a problem with Multiview.

There is something that you may be able to help with. How to isolate a path without the filename.

Email me or message me if you'd like.

Did you enter the full path of the program? It has minimal error checking at the moment. If you just cd to the path + program such as "Work:programs/Icon2Png" then only enter the command 'Icon2Png' with no args it will say "cannot open icon file".

I forgot to mention that you must be in the same directory as the program 'Icon2Png' or copy it to your 'C' directory to make it executable. Try that instead of (path + program name).

As far as Icon Tools, here is the Icon2PNG tool that can be used from the AROS shell to extract PNG images from PNG Icons.

http://aros-exec.org/home/arosexec/ar ... he/6991_592f1ad5be3d5.zip

Just remove the .zip extension before use.

Usage: [Program(path+Icon2PNG)] [Icon(path+file.info)] [Optional Output Image1 (path+file.png)] [Optional Output Image2 (path+file.png)]

If optional output paths are not used both icon images will be extracted to Ram Disk:

I have two icon programs that I am porting to AROS. The first is "PNG Icon Edit" and the second is "PNG Icon Paint". You've probably seen the first one but here it is again and the paint program also. It may take a while to convert it to C code but it will be a nice addition to the growing list of AROS tools.

I really like HostBridge! That is some original thinking! That setup will be very useful.

Not having to switch computers while programming and testing is a huge bonus and I can use my native tools!

Thank you!

I'm currently working on improving the IFF Load and Save functions for the IFF DataType. I plan to use the BMP datatype as a sample, but I believe it may have problems saving Bitmap (BMP) Files. So I might have to fix it first.

PNG DataType (Multiview) can load and save "normal" png images correctly, but it cannot save png images with Ic0n chunk.

I should have the new code in a couple weeks then we can save images as BMP and IFF formats.

In the process I have set up a "Pics(pictue datatypes)-Imaging Experiment" aka "Pixie" Viewer to test the new datatypes code. I'm using the Load and Save functions of BMP,PNG, and IFF datatypes to improve the functions. The test program may evolve into a functional Multi-Image Viewer/Converter that will allow opening and viewing images then saving as other image types including PNG and IFF-ILBM. I'm not sure Multiview can do that at the moment.

Wawa,

Can AROS 68k legally use the same icon set as Icaros Desktop (ken's icons)?

I realize they are PNG on Icaros and not IFF but they could be converted quite easily to IFF icons. I have a sample icon that works well on Amiga Os 3.5 so I assume it will work on AROS 68k.

If AROS 68k is running on accelerated 68k hardware with enhanced graphics then 5bitplane or 8bitplane IFF-ILBM icons should be just fine. If it is running on a stock 68k system it's probably not going to work well.

Wawa and others,
It sounds like AROS needs a full featured Icon Paint program.

I wrote an Icon Paint program about 8 years ago that would be quite nice to use with AROS but it is in C Sharp dotNET.
Converting my paint program to C code and compiling for AROS would take some time. There are many things involved and it's somewhat of a complicated program with many graphical elements. It could take up to six months to have a working version for AROS, if you can wait that long.

For example I have invented a way to translate each pixel coordinate of the original icon image into a region of 4x4, 6x6, or 8x8 pixels in the larger "Canvas Area" for painting. I have been calling it the "Pixelate" process but it is more likely "Trixelate" (translate image coordinate system). It allows me to paint a pixel (region) in the Canvas area while simultaneously changing the corresponding pixel in the original image. I have also written code to allow for "Selection Tinting" and a "Dancing Ants" selection set boundary.

Similar in complexity, the image grid is applied using composite bitmap images. Zoom in, zoom out is accomplished by resizing the image in the Canvas Area. And these are just a few of the processes I will have to translate into C code for use with AROS. I will post a conceptual layout of the User Interface for "PNG Icon Paint" in the next few days.

Perhaps Icaros Desktop could include these Icon Utilities on the Live! DVD as well as a couple of Mount Files, so that we could then use it as a Boot DVD to paint icons then save them to SD card or Compact Flash for use with AROS 68k, or Amiga OS 68k or another version of AROS? That would be nice!

Testing 68k, reporting stuff, and porting stuff! That's a good deal.

Maybe in the process we can make improvements that benefit all flavors of AROS as well.
