Improve icons for MuseScore Portable

I read #20038 Create installer artwork and think maybe we could improve the icons for MuseScore Portable as well.

I did them once based on the MuseScore Logo, but I'm not a graphic designer. At the moment they are not really sharp for me ;-).

What's needed?
Three PNG icons (16x16, 32x32 and 128x128) and an ICO file.
Detailed informations see .

Thanks in advance for your help.


If there is some interest to associate MSCZ and MSCX files to MuseScore Portable (when using the Platform), we could create similar icons or use the MuseScore Logo as well.

Note: The file associations feature isn't implemented in the platform yet, but it's on the roadmap.

Thanks for the pointers. :-)
The *.ico files don't contain all required 7 formats though.

In my opinion the 128x128 version is ok, but the smaller ones aren't that sharp. Especially the 16x16 version is pixelated (or my monitor or eyes are too bad). ;-)

@BartS we are working on a better version of the small PNG and the icons. It will be available in MuseScore 1.3 and I will let you know here when it's ready.

There is room for huge improvements. My personal goal for 2.0 is to get a full time designer on board. With good design, MuseScore 2.0 will shine so much more.

Thanks Bart for creating the portable package. Give me a couple of hours to change the download link as I'm remote for the moment.
