Exporting icon(s) from selected file
When you select/open any file with icons, you may save/export the icons using Save button at the top as described below:
1. All or selected icon can be saved to ICO, BMP, JPEG, GIF, PNG, or EMF files.
You can select the needed export file type by choosing the corresponding item from the popup menu which appears after clicking the Save button.
If you export all icons as separate graphic files (1) then you will be prompted to select the folder where the images are to be saved. When saving, the created files will be named automatically as follows: ico_<source_file_name><icon_number>.<extension>. For example, if the source file name is winword.exe and destination format is BMP then files will be named so: ico_winword001.bmp, ico_winword002.bmp, and so on. You will be prompted to overwrite already existing files. To skip the prompting, just click Yes to All button.
Note: after exporting, you can quickly rename the created files with custom renaming rules by using, for example, Rename Us software.
Exporting icons from all files in specified folder
There is an option to extract and save all icons at the same time from all of the selected files found when scanning a folder in the search panel.
First, you need to select the folder with icon containing files. Then click Extract and Save from All Files button in the middle of the Search panel, choose destination format and select a folder into which to save the images. The files are named as described above for exporting all icons from selected file.
Export operations may be performed also via the command line.
