Icons Scaled to 46 high:

I have scaled most of the freely available OS4.1 icons and icons by Lorraine Design to 46 high. Not sure how the authors would feel about these being distributed, will look into this...

Tools to create your own icons from any image:
ImageConverter can create DualPNG glowicons out of PNG images with transparency:

IconMaker Scripts for ImageConverter and Join:

Add transparency to images with an Image Processor like ArtEffect or PPT:
http://www.amiga-arena.de/tools.html
http://www.ecyrd.com/~jalkanen/PPT/
OptiPNG can be used to crop the first image from gif (snip) animations and DualPNG icons (fix - use copies!). This is the 040fpu version from Aminet with added scripts to make things easier:

SGrab is useful for grabbing screenshots to crop and convert:

Rename all those PNG icons on Aminet e.t.c. from .info back to .png with a tool like MultiRen so they can be converted by ImageConverter:

KDEView for icon copying:
