+ It has special features to make resulting BLPs even smaller;
+ It supports user created borders;
+ It can operate multiple icons with ease;
+ It has some settings to customize border applying;
+ It has user-friendly interface;
+ It can open BLP2 textures.

Cons:

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



If you have found bugs or you have new ideas, feel free to post it in this topic.

    McAfee recognizes almost every EXE packed with UPX as some virus.
    This fact kinda hints us that you have very good antivirus.

    Well before installing McAfee I tried Button Manager and is very good, simple and clean art I say 10/10 but that anti-virus problem is very bothersome even when I order the anti-virus to restore the file it remove it again.

    Damn I was hoping I could use it. But still a good tool :thumbs_up: (+rep)

    Trojans appear as legitimate programs but can damage valuable files, disrupt performance, and allow unauthorized access to your computer.

    The only reason why it counts as a trojan is because it's probably excecuting a code within another program for the program to work.

    Like a parasite, except a computer version.

    ShadowhunterX, have you tried to read previous posts?

    Also, tool would not be approved, if it had viruses.

    'nuff said.
