New 7-zip Icon by fediaFedia New 7-zip Icon by fediaFedia
There is a saying that as your tools improve, so do your standards. Since people were still faving this icon I did a really, really long time ago, I decided to give it a little spit shine.

Redone in Photoshop, each icon size handcrafted for maximum sharpness. A program as amazing as 7-zip definitely deserves a nicer icon., rather than something from Win95-ish era.

Enjoy!

Comments are welcome!

Hello, just created a 'right-click context menu' batch script that makes use of this icon, and it references this link and your username.
I hope you like it :D

Please check it out!

Very nice, but I think letter 'z' should begin in the same line as '7' (so should be a bit upper, than now).

Thanks! I followed the original design, the letter z begins with the black rectangle that contains the 7, otherwise it would look disproportionate.

The irony is that this filed opened in winzip instead of 7zip.

If you ever make archive file icons, you ought to upload a res-hacked version of the 7z icon .dll's.

I'm a huge fan of 7-zip, and yes you're right - the default icon definitely needed some love... ;)

Thanks, there are quite a few nice icons in the 7-zip gallery, yet the default 7z icon is still simple...

Awesome. That looks really good. You can see all the shading and gradients you used when you look at the large icon.

Paint.COM looks pretty good. Does it have a clone tool?

I don't think there is a clone tool, but it might be added in later versions

They can be easily replaced, you have any favorite WinRar (or sth) skins I could take the icons from?

:iconlance315:

Actually I just tried replacing the icons with the icons from a skin and when I tried it, it displayed it incorrectly, probably it only supports 4-bit icons.
