What is an object and how to create icons from objects?

An object is a simple graphical object provided in 256x256 high resolution. Objects also contain an alpha channel which permits to create interesting effects like semi-transparency, lighning, outer or inner glow, shadows...

An object usually contains one part of the drawing witch cannot be used alone. You need to combine several objects together in order to create the final artwork. This can be done very easily by simple mouse drag & drops in Axialis products.
