Where to Get Graphics for a New Project?

Need images for your next project? Do not know how to make the most important graphical part of the software? Try visiting the web-page www.777icons.com! It will help you add smoothness and elegance to your software, which will be very helpful for you later!

An icon is an essential part of almost any software project and it needs thorough preparation and deserves not less attention than the development of the software itself. This is what the client sees first on the Windows desktop after getting the software.

Stock Icons for software development

It is extremely important and absolutely needed for every software developer to profit from his product, otherwise there will be no funds to start a new project and the progress will get stuck. Trying to rise the sales of a program and to earn a good reputation on the market, programmers usually neglect one of the leading graphical parts in software - its icon, while it could help to get more buyers and, as a result, rise sales and money many times.

Many developers view an icon as a useless attribute in application development, spend little time on it and, therefore, the demand for their software is low and they make losses. And the following question appears: why is the demand for the program low if it has wonderful features, its algorithms work flawlessly and state-of-the-art development tools were used during its development? When we purchase a product at a store, the primary thing we look at is its visual look and if it looks okay, we buy it and only afterwards we find out what is in the package, but if the look does not impress us, we leave such a product where it was and go on to find a more suitable one. The same is right for the virtual world - when a customer downloads a shareware program, the first thing he looks at is the icon of this software and he immediately gets the first impression about the program, which can later have the major role in choosing the software. Only after running the program, the customer experiences its features.

Judging from the psychological characteristics of all people, it is necessary to make the first impression (which is the strongest one) great so that the icon could appeal to the user as much as possible and get him to using the software. Just imagine that the demand for your software among competitors on the market depends on what pictogram your software will have. And missing a client nowadays means wasting the effort and funds spent on this project, which equals to losing profit as well! Thus, you need to think if it would be smarter to entrust the development of such an important part of your software to professionals in the field and to spend more time on developing the features of your program?

Among of the leading experts in this area is the Aha-Soft company that created the site www.777icons.com. Every customer gets an individual approach so all requirements and suggestions about the icon are considered. And this pictogram will later increase the sales of your project and, therefore, money you earn!
