    Create and Implement Icons :: MFC

    Hi.

    I would like to create a unique icon for an Windows program via MFC. I have a few common questions.

    First, what size(s) do the image file(s) have to be? How many images files are required? I remember reading a few weeks back that a program requires two images files for its icon.

    Secondly, what format do you have to save the image file in order to import it directly to MFC's Resource Editor?

    Thanks,
    Kuphryn

    I've only ever created icons using the resource editor (which opens MS paint I think). I believe you only need a single bitmap, but it sounds like your after something different.
    Couldn't think of anything interesting, cool or funny - sorry.
