Graphics - Icon and Cursor Editors (8)

RealWorld Cursor Editor v2013.1

Checker on 11 Jul 2013

RealWorld Cursor Editor can create and edit cursors, both static and animated. You can draw your cursors pixel by pixel or make them from images using a simple wizard. Images in cursors can be modified by drawing tools such as Lines, Curves, Rectangles, or Ellipses. A drag-and-drop based interface allows users to easily reorder, duplicate, or append frames to animated cursors.

The program contains several predefined filters covering color corrections, softening, sharpening, motion blur and other effects. Selected filters (for example drop shadow) can be applied on multiple images at once.

Can import cursors from Linux XCursor format.

What's new?
  • This version of RWCE contains some changes introduced in RealWorld Paint 2013.1, including redesigned color picker, drawing tools and effect windows.
  • There are also changes directly related to cursors:
    - When selecting cursor sizes in various places of the application, a text field with one or more sizes in pixels and a dropdown menu with standard options is used.
    - Improved support for Linux XCursor files. When opening a xcursor file, all resolutions are imported and the cursor can also be saved. The code was moved to a plug-in that can be installed from the online page.
    - Function that uploads cursor to the cursor library is now more user friendly. Users must log in before uploading a cursor. After a successful upload, a link to a web page with the cursor is displayed. Obviously flawed cursors can not be uploaded anymore.

WARNING: this no longer comes as a direct download of the zip, but as an executable downloader which downloads the zip, but in the process you have to decline installation of about four different annoyanceware toolbars and addons. Also the downloader itself is not portable; it leaves folders in AppData.

When you click the download link, a page opens with the download, just un-check the "Use our download manager and get recommended downloads" box. You'll get the zip file that you want. My Avast keeps blocking the site/file so I just disabled. After download I checked using VirusTotal and comes up clean.

Website and download links seem to be broken.

Thanks, Emka. The download link points to http://web.archive.org/web/20110204080136/http://icofx.ro/anifx/files/anifxpe.zip now. I've also added a mention to the PA.c version.
When IcoFX went payware, cursors edition capabilities were added to it. Probably, that's the reason why AniFX was killed.
