Converting MAC to ICO

The MAC extension stands for bitmap images associated with the MacPaint program developed by Apple MacIntosh. MAC images only support a monochrome (black and white) color rendering, are not scalable and have a modest resolution of 75 dpi. However, they are quick to download and decompress. MAC files can also be found under the PNTG extension on Mac computers and they are frequently used for clip art or monochrome graphics.

ICO files contain the images used as icons for files, folders or programs on the Microsoft Windows platform. The icons appear on the desktop, in Windows Explorer or in the Start Menu and help identify each item. ICO images are generally of a small size, are scalable, and they can also serve as website logos or symbols that appear in the web browser next to the URL. The equivalent of ICO files on Mac computers is called ICNS.
