Be it standard animated or custom sized animated cursors, every type of cursor can be easily created and edited using Artcursor software.

Easy To Use Interface
One of the most important features that you need is any software is an easy to use option and art cursors supports easy user interface. The menu bar items in the Artcursors software will change depending on the function that you execute and the simple windows interface without any gradients and skins will be very easy to operate.

Icons And Cursors
The icons and cursors blend well collectively, as the beginning window that you come across while making brand-new ones is the identical one. This window allows you to pick out from the accessible templates or employ a customized size for your document. The color depth can extend from black and white to true color fashion with transparence, but the Conversion Mode and Resample Filter appear to be inaccessible in the test edition. You will be able to save your cursor as an iconic file without any trouble at all even though you will not be able to find a new icon item in the file menu. Also, animated icons and cursors can be easily created with the help of new animation menu that is available in the software.

Library Options
Another important feature of the art cursor software is the library option which will help you in grouping all the single icons and cursors into a single file. You will also be able to create or add new icons and cursors into the existing library as well as edit the icons right into your library. The best part of Art cursors software is the facility it provides to use layers. You will be able to create and store images that have several layers very easily using the art cursors software.

Additional Features
In built color palettes, image modifying options, importing and exporting of any kind of files like .gif, .jpeg, .cur, .bmp, .psd, .emf files, breaking of the entire cursor library into individual cursors, paint tool options, color depth up to 16 million colors and deletion of identical cursors all by itself are some of the extra features that you will experience when you use Artcursors software.

Pros
Art cursor software is an excellent icon and cursor creation software that is well equipped to handle layers, easy to use and is loaded with features.

Cons
The help segments are not so very clear and it seems to be slightly highly priced for the features that it possesses.
