Clic is a CLIPBOARD TO ICON CONVERTER.  Generate stunning icons in true color (24bit, 16.7 million colors) with transparency. Screen Capture grabs an icon from anywhere on the screen in realtime, or Paste to Fit auto resizes your picture. So Simple!

➽ Internet authors create your favicon.ico for website representation.


Clic rests a link on your Start button after download at:
"Start > Clic (Vintage) by" for your quick, easy 'find' convenience.

Tip: Clic is portable and will run from within the folder you download it to.

Technical Note:
An icon created with Clic may display at a different size on your Windows Desktop, because the Desktop forces all icons, regardless of actual size, to display at the Desktop's current display size setting.  For instance, if your Desktop is set to display icons at 64w x 64h, then a 32w x 32h icon will be zoomed up 200% to fit.

FeaturesHelp Topics
PortableHelp TopicsA portable program is a self-contained program that stores it's files, settings and other data within the folder it is based, usually a folder of your choice, on a harddrive, USB penstick or memory card.

No library files or settings are installed outside the program folder, leaving your operating system unchanged, and unmodified. Optional links can be placed on your Start button and Desktop, for convenient start of program.

Start button and Desktop linksHelp TopicsOn first run, Clic automatically places a link on your Start button. Find Clic easily by looking for the link "Clic (Vintage) by". With Clic, it's easy to place a link on your Start button / Desktop, or to remove it.

Show Splash on StartHelp TopicsOn startup Clic pauses momentarily to display an artistic splash screen. This feature can be turned off for slightly faster load times. To turn off, select "File" menu and untick "Show Splash on Start". Tick to turn back on.

Show FolderHelp TopicsCan't remember where you put Clic? Don't worry, select the "File" menu and click "Show Folder" option. A Microsoft File Explorer folder will display with the Clic program (EXE) listed. Typically, Clic has the name "clic.exe".

Screen CaptureHelp TopicsClick and drag white hand (far right) toolbar button to begin screen capture. Position cursor at required capture location. Whilst capturing, press space bar to toggle between fine and normal movement modes. Release mouse to finalise capture. The captured image is displayed within Clic.

PasteHelp TopicsFrom your graphics editor of choice, e.g. Microsoft Paint etc. copy the desired image to Clipboard. From Clic select "Edit > Paste". The image is inserted from Clipboard. No resampling is performed.

If the image is larger than an example target dimension of 32x32, the image will be cropped - all pixels outside the target dimensions of 32x32 are excluded.

If the image is smaller than an example target dimension of 32x32, then difference is filled with white.

Paste to FitHelp TopicsFrom your graphics editor of choice, e.g. Microsoft Paint, copy the desired image to Clipboard. A square image is recommended for best results. From Clic select "Edit > Paste to Fit". The image is automatically resampled to target icon dimensions. The target dimension is set from the "Edit" menu. To change, select "Edit" and choose a dimension between 16x16 to 96x96.

Drag and DropHelp TopicsClic supports drag and drop for bitmap (BMP) and jpeg (JPG) image types. From within a Microsoft File Explorer window, select a compatible image (hold down left mouse button), then drag the image (while keeping left mouse button down, and move the mouse cursor into position) over Clic's window. Release mouse button. Clic opens the image and automatically resamples it to fit the target icon dimensions as if it were "Paste to Fit".

TransparencyHelp TopicsAn icon can have transparent pixels. These are see-through. To make pixels of a specific color transparent, click the cursor on the picture color of Clic's "Enlarged View" or "Actual Size" panels. Clic automatically makes all pixels of that chosen color transparent. The transparent pixels flash silver / white to indicate their transparency.

To try different transparent colors in realtime, click and drag cursor over multiple colors to compare the difference.

To remove transparency select "Image" menu and untick the "Transparent" option.

GreyscaleHelp TopicsConvert your icon into shades of grey. Clic supports 256 shades of grey. For greyscale conversion select "Image" menu and tick the "Greyscale" option. Untick to turn off.

On TopHelp TopicsWant Clic to sit above other programs? Select "Edit" menu and tick "On Top".  Clic now has priority and sits atop all other programs and windows. To turn this feature off, untick "On Top".

MirrorHelp TopicsSelect "Image > Mirror" to flip image left-right (horizontally). Transparency, if active, mirrors too.

FlipHelp TopicsSelect "Image > Flip" to flip image top-bottom (vertically). Transparency, if active, flips too.

InvertHelp TopicsSelect "Image > Invert" to change all colors in current image to their inverse.

red > aqua, yellow > blue, black > white, blue > yellow and green  > purple.

Selecting the invert option a second time reverts all colors back to their original values.

RotateHelp TopicsRotate the image left or right by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. Transparency, if active, rotates also.

Remove ClicHelp TopicsClic is 100% portable and does not install onto your computer, or alter or adjust the operation of your computer. Since there is no installation, there is no uninstall option. To remove Clic from your computer / disk, the process must be done manually.

Important Note
Before you remove Clic, ensure both the "Start button link" and "Desktop link" options under "File" menu are unticked.

Due to the complex nature of security protocols under modern day Microsoft Windows' operating system, if these links are not removed by the program that created them, e.g. Clic, they may linger or persist.

From Clic select "File > Show Folder".  A folder will display with the Clic program (EXE) listed within it. Typically Clic will have the name "clic.exe". Right click the file and select delete option. If prompts appear, confirm your intention to delete.

Clic is now removed from your computer / disk.

A shared folder "Blaiz Enterprises" is automatically created and maintained by Clic during it's normal operation. This folder is responsible for holding settings, files and associated data for Clic. It can also be used by other Blaiz Enterprises' programs located in the same folder, alongside the Clic program (EXE). If there are no other programs (EXE) in the folder, it is safe to delete the folder of "Blaiz Enterprises". Right click the folder and select the delete option. If prompts appear, confirm your intention to delete.

Clic's data is now removed from your computer / disk.
