A stupid question I know, but how do you use .png icons in OS4? I've come across quite a few applications that use them, but when I try to use them from Workbench what I see are separate executable and .png files.

Install powericons. Then just rename the .png files to .info and they should show as icons.

Interesting. So Powericons style icon support isn't integrated into the OS yet?

Hi Valiant,

You mentioned:A stupid question I know, but how do you use .png icons in OS4?

Really? OS4 showed up around here July 2004. PowerIcons showed up two months before that!

I think there's something wrong with your hat!

Your lid (armour head piece) is closed? Thus you can't see all the nice releases for OS4..

Hey! I don't lift my visor for nobody, buddy. I can see all the nice releases for OS4 just fine when I want to.

I read some time back that png (powericons) support is
planned for a future icon.library, that means it's
implemented already?

/me crosses fingers

IIRC the latest beta icon.library has the ability to scale icons and supports 32-bit and plug-ins.

PNG images are less than ideal as an icon file format, so they were never going to be an official 'out-the-box' feature of AmigaOS.

It would have been easy enough to add this years ago, but we resisted doing so because we had a bigger/better long term vision than that, and didn't want to be lumbered with having to maintain legacy PNG icon support in the OS forever more.

So instead, APIs were added to allow a clean PowerIcons implementation. And this has now been superseded by a PNG plug-in for the new native 32-bit AmigaOS icons system. Neither PNG icon option is enabled by default because we don't want application developers to be tempted release their apps with nothing but PNG icons provided. (One reason).

Obviously the new 32-bit format is the preferred format now, given the advantages and backwards compatibility it offers.

yes please, no PNG icons, Amiga Icons are way better because they provides alternative images to show the selected state which isn't the case of PNG icons...
A native format supporting alpha and 32bits would replace all those PNG thingie.

...And the scalable possibility is the cherry on the cake
