    You can make icons on regular Paint...although they will suck. Any image that is 60x60 qualifies for an icon.

    Well if you can't figure it out on your own, maybe you shouldn't try. It is pretty basic. You don't need anybody to tell you how, you just know.

    Actually, ANY image will qualify for an icon. 60 x 60 is just the recommended size for icons, but you can make them as big or small as you want.

    Anyway, it's pretty easy to make icons. Just grab an image from Google, resize, recolor, and do whatever you want with it. Then save it as a PNG and add it to your Icons folder.

    I know, my point was that you can use virtually anything to make icons. And it gets more complicated after you go past 60x60 if you don't know what you're doin.
