What is the best way to add 16x16 (small) icons?

If you’re an icon perfectionist, like the factory workers are, then you’ll want your small, list view icons to look as good as your 32×32 sized icons. This means not simply cropping the larger versions to fit (as that sometimes is the case) but instead to design the smaller icon versions by hand.

When working with IconBuilder, its best to always use a large sized canvas and build each of your different icon sizes and bit depths on their own layers. In this way, you can do a QuickBuild to get all the basic shapes and masks into the icon grid, but then you can go back and add each custom size and depth manually until it’s perfect.
