Design brand new cursors for your applications by extracting and improving the already existing ones from libraries and Windows executable files
Despite the fact that they make navigation on the computer simpler and more efficient, cursors are often ignored, at least aesthetics-wise.
ArtCursors is a lightweight application that allows you create, edit, export and save icons for your applications.
Comes with an old-school and rugged interface
The utility includes an old-fashioned UI comprised of an editing panel surrounded by numerous editing features. Even though it is not a looker, the interface is intuitive and there are slim chances you can encounter difficulties when trying to design your own cursor.
It is necessary to mention that the UI includes a small window that allows you to preview how the cursor looks like while you are still working on it. In addition, you can open several tabs and try out various modifications or effects for the icons before you decide which one is best suited for your application.
Includes numerous customizable effects
The strong point of the application comes from the plethora of effects you can employ to design a marker or improve the one you already extracted. To put it simply, you can use drop shadow, blend images, lock various color channels or add stroke to create an icon that stands out.
You should know that the program enables you to set your own parameters for each of the special effects you want to use, which is quite a nice feature to have when you are trying to design a particular detail within the cursor. In addition, it comes with options that can help you fill in the pixels so that they appear classy and professional, depending on your talent.
As a side note, the program supports a wide variety of images and enables you to save, import or export your projects to various file formats, including ANI, GIF, BMP, ICPR or PNG to name a few.
An excellent tool for creating icons and cursors
Although it could use a modern interface, the truth is that ArtCursors does compensate for the lack of aesthetics features-wise and could be the utility you need to help you design markers.
