    There is no such thing. All icons and pointer cursors are part of the program executables and UI resources, some of which are accessible, otehrs which are not....

    Assuming the OP is interested in a plugin or other feature that would make it possible to actually open, edit, and save .cur files, I have needed that myself.  Unfortunately I didn't easily find a suitable solution and ended up downloading the free version of Axialis Icon Workshop for Visual Studio, which also handles making cursor files.  I was able to save .png files with transparency from Photoshop, then import those files into the Axialis application.

     

    I too would love to find a good solution for reading and writing .cur and .ico files directly from Photoshop.

     

    Now, I certainly haven't tried all the commercial/shareware/freeware out there, so perhaps this thread will uncover some good answers.

    P.S., A quick web search turns up these possibilities:

    I guess thats one of the reasons why I still have Corel Draw installed. Both .cur and .ico files as well as fonts can be created with it. Though for some reason I still prefer adobe apps.

    Yes, Corel Draw export to .ico, .cur, .ttf and postscript format, I forget at the moment of that extension, but you get the idea.

    With the fonts its one character at a time. The entire canvas is the size of a single character.

    For ICO editing, I like http://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/icofx_portable

     

    For CUR editing: http://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/anifx_portable

     

    These are portable apps but they can install to an internal drive just as easily. These Windows apps also seem to run fine in Wine (for Mac and Linux).

    Hi Noel,

    What does OP stands for? Just curious.

     

    Hi ??????,

     

    I know this is an old question, but I wanted to comment...  I wrote my post using the term "OP" instead of your name, which is a nicer way to write, because, well, you didn't provide your name.  Names are nice, names are personal, names allow richer communication.
