How to control matte / AND mask for Windows icons?

I'm trying to write an 8-bit Windows icon whose pixels are fully transparent if the corresponding pixel in the 32-bit RGBA source image is fully transparent. I realize that transparency in 8-bit Windows icons is not handled by defining one of the 256 colors to be treated as transparent (like e.g. th...

Re: -compress Zip does not work to create PNG icons

This seems to be fixed in IM 6.8.4. Thanks!

Re: Wrong color depth reported for PNG-compressed icons

While the incorrect reports of the rendering_intent and chunks seem to be fixed in IM 6.8.4, the reported depth for the PNG icon still is 8-bit instead of 32-bit. Even if "identify" reports the sample depth, shouldn't it report the pixel depth instead anyway?

Re: How to create Windows icon with boolean transparency

Thanks for double-checking. I'm currently looking into using NConvert instead, and first tests seem to be promising.

It seems "-depth 8" has not effect when writing ICO files, they still are 32-bit :-(

convert -colorspace sRGB -density 256x256 Git-Icon-1788C.eps -resize 256x256 git.gif convert git.gif -type palettematte git.ico Thanks, that works, but I realized it in fact already worked before without "-type palettematte". It was my image viewer that was buggy and is not able to display boolean ...

Re: How to create Windows icon with boolean transparency

At http://www.imagemagick.org/script/formats.php the ICON format is marked as read-only, thus I think that the writing support is very limited. I have tried to write icons with indexed colours with ImageMagick on my Windows computer, but failed too. That's interesting because there's actually a tut...

[FIXED] "-compress Zip" does not work to create PNG icons

Hi, as you know Windows since Vista supports icons to be PNG compressed. While IM is able to identify such icons, is does not seem to be able to create them. At least I was not able to get "-compress Zip" to work with icons. For testing, use http://git-scm.com/images/logos/downloads/Git-Icon-1788C.e...
