IM/IconMaker                                                  IM/IconMaker

NAME
    IconMaker (IM) -- Create icons from IFF/ILBM brushes

PURPOSE
    Suppose you painted some brushes and now you want to make icons from them.
    Or let's assume you've downloaded some brushes and you don't know how they
    look like.  This is where it comes to IM -- the IconMaker.  IM creates
    icons from brushes and offers you the best possibility for a preview: the
    Workbench with all its functions!  (-:

INSTALLATION
    Simply copy IM.000 (or IM.030 if you have a MC68030 Amiga) somewhere into
    your path (e.g. to C:) and rename it to IM.

EXAMPLE
    Let's assume you have DOpus5 and you want to see all brushes in
    the Images/ and Images2/ drawer.  You simply have to do the following:

      List >RAM:doit ALL FILES DIR DOpus5:Images/ DOpus5:Images2/ +
        PAT ~(#?.info) LFORMAT "IM FROM *"%p%n*" TO *"%p%n*""

      Execute RAM:doit

    By default IM creates a project icon with the default tool "MultiView" and
    a ToolType "FILETYPE=ILBM".  This is what I need in most cases when using IM
    for the above purpose.  However, with IM you can create icons of any type.

OPTIONS
    IM can be given several parameters:

    FROM=NORMAL/K/A

        The specified IFF/ILBM brush will be used for the normal image of
        the icon.  This argument must be present in the command line.

    SELECTED/K

        The specified IFF/ILBM brush will be used for the selected image of
        the icon.  If present in the command line, an implicit HIGHLIGHT=IMAGE
        is used.

    TO/K/A

        The name of the icon without (!) the trailing ".info" which is appended
        automatically by PutDiskObject().

    IW=ICONWIDTH/K/N
    IH=ICONHEIGHT/K/N

        The dimensions of the icon image.  Smaller values than those of the
        brush(es) will use the top/left corner of the image, larger values 
        will fill up the icon image's bottom/right border with 0's

    MINSIZE/S

        If the two IFF/ILBM brushes differ in size then the resulting icon
        image normally has the dimensions of the larger brush.  However, if
        the MINSIZE switch is present in the command line, the dimensions of
        the smaller brush are used.

    TYPE/K

        By default, IM will use TYPE=PROJECT and create a project icon with
        the default tool "MultiView".  However TYPE can be one of the
        following:  DISK/S,DRAWER/S,TOOL/S,PROJECT/S,GARBAGE/S

    HIGHLIGHT/K

        This argument specifies the highlighting method of the icon, i.e. what
        happens when the icon is selected.  If a SELECTED image is specified,
        then IM implicitly assumes HIGHLIGHT=IMAGE.  However HIGHLIGHT can be
        one of the following: COMPLEMENT/S,BACKFILL/S,IMAGE/S

    IX=ICONX/K/N
    IY=ICONY/K/N

        By default the created icon has no fix position.  These two options
allow
        an exact positioning of the created icon.

    TOOLTYPES/K/M

        Any number of ToolTypes can be specified.  By default IM uses

             TOOLTYPES "FILETYPE=ILBM"

    STACKSIZE/K/N

        The default stack size for a tool.

    DEFAULTTOOL/K

        The default tool for PROJECT and DISK icons.

    WX=WINDOWX/K/N
    WY=WINDOWY/K/N
    WW=WINDOWWIDTH/K/N
    WH=WINDOWHEIGHT/K/N

        The window parameters for DRAWERs or DISKs.

BUGS
    IM does not remap the colors in your brushes to Workbench colors.  This
    may or may not be implemented in the future.  Please mail me if you really
    need such a feature.

SEE ALSO
    IM, OptIcon and Icon2C are good friends.  Together they make a strong
    tool triple for icon manipulation without a GUI.
