    If you are just looking for something super quick and not as worried about the quality (in comparison with IcoFX) then you could try this one too:

    Well, from the screenshot, they don’t look very crisp… Which makes me wonder if it would be possible to tweak Window’s resizing algorithms, I think not, but it would be cool (something like sharp bicubic would be very nice).
