Toolbar paint makes it easy for you to make toolbar buttons for software.
Supports 16 color, 256 color, 24 and 32 bit graphics, up to 64 buttons in a toolbar, button sizes from 16 to 48 pixels square, standard set of drawing tools and effects, optionally generate a mask when saving, load toolbars directly from executables and DLL's, rearrange toolbar image list by simply dragging and dropping buttons, merge image lists, gray scaling to create disabled button images, plug in support.
This is an old program which may have some quirks on the newer OS's. Actually I couldn't get the drag and drop feature to work. It would be great if the author could update this program. For now it is just a decent toolbar maker program that you cannot get anywhere else for free.
Tbpaint is just for editing toolbar bitmaps. I have used it alot, and it makes very short work of adding new buttons to any toolbar bitmap. It will even export to 32 bit bmp. The interface is compact, but a bit clunky, and there seem to be any way to edit color or alpha channels. However, you CAN import a 32bit image, which also imports the alpha channel attached to that image. I say this program is good for small, quickie jobs, but if you are going to do something top-notch, you might look for something else. Still, it is worth having on hand for those tiny jobs when you don't want to re-wrap your mind around some forgotten project.
