Installed the latest 7.22 and the icon looks great on the Windows 7 taskbar.

Hi Guys,

An updated version of the installer is available on the website. It uses one of the new icons and the quality is much higher.

Cheers,

Hi Guys,

We've got a few new designs for the new QPL icon. I'll email them to you for your feedback.

Cheers,
- Rowan.

Thanks guys. Sorry we didn't get to this in the 7.22 release but I'll update the installer this week with an icon that scales to all of the right sizes. We were intending to change the design of the icon as well, so that it was based around a "Q" and so that it matches the QPL colors.

Cheers,
- Rowan.

It's really not the icon resolution that's the problem... it's the size.  The embedded icon actually is 16 million colors, 32 bit.
 
However, the icon file only includes a 16x16 pixel version rendering.  When a shortcut is created, Windows looks for a 32x32 (or in some cases 48x48).  If it can't find one it resizes the existing icon which is why it looks blurry and jagged.
 
I know some people find this kind of thing trivial and unimportant, but I happen to agree with BEvans.  It bothered me.  So I created my own icon file which maintains the exact same flavor of the original icon and includes 32bit ARGB versions at 32x32, 48x48 and 128x128 pixel size, along with the original 16x16 version.  Then I just changed the icon from the Properties menu of the Desktop Shortcut.
 
I'd love to upload it here, but this forum doesn't allow attachments.  If anyone would like a copy, let me know.  I'd be glad to send it to you.  I also sent a copy to Rowan via email.
 
No cost... just a free aesthetic service for those like myself and BEvans.

A cosmetic thing but in Windows 7 the icon for qpl_menu.exe is too low of resoltion and when placed on the desktop by the installer or when on the taskbar when the program is running is a horrible blurry mess. The icon used by uninst.exe and uninstall.exe in QuickPDF install directory is better but an even higher resoltion one would be nicer.
