+ It supports user created borders;
+ It can operate multiple icons with ease;
+ It has some settings to customize border applying;

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: My antivirus says that this program is virus!
A: If your antivirus detects this program as trojan, you probably have McAfee, Comodo, eSafe or Prevx. They don't know anything about exe-optimization-by-hands and UPX. Therefore I recommend to change antivirus.

Q: What's all those BLP settings for?
A: Check butman_readme_eng.txt.



Change log for v1.8.2:
  • Extended PNG support
  • Fixed bug when saving icon with enabled transparency view
  • Fixed bug with incorrent saving in JPEG format

    An extremely useful tool, that features everything a warcraft 3 icon creator wants. Heck even what someone just making icons want when it comes to borders and ease of use.
