That's what I meant by sucks. It only creates 8bit or 16bit icons with no alpha channel.

Actually you don't have to remove the background,
All that is needed is to export as png and open in gimp or similar and export as an ico file
It's just weird cd won't do it :/
I saw a video which was the same issue but exported as bmp and the name had the ico extension but the bg was black so it didn't make much sense either to make a round object with a black square around it unless it's a start orb

Looking for some graphics software
Have had a look at Paint Net and Gimp but am not sure if they will do what I want to do. I haven't had much to do with graphics per se' and haven't got a really decent GPU and I don't mind a paid for app as long as it isn't going to break the bank. So any suggestions please?
