Need help using free icons


#1

I downloaded this pack of free 350 icons:

I opened the PS file up and see one layer with all the icons. My question is how do I get the icons i want?

That’s interesting. No idea- I haven’t used this one before. Have you tried contacting them regarding their product? Always happy to help and in this case I think the best thing to do would be to ask the provider- I’d be curious to hear what they say.

Can you not just select and copy the individual icons that you need from that layer?


#4

you mean crop them out? yea i was thinking that, I thought I was missing something but that can work.


#5

I did. I agree that it seems weird, but I have the vague memory that I’ve come across the same thing before in the past and cropping them was the only solution.


#6

If you want to work of the the EPS file, you can open it in Adobe Illustrator and you’ll have access to each icon as a separate vector graphic.
I’m pretty sure you’ve seen other formats provided by “NOVA”.

If you are designing in Photoshop, use AI file to extract from, but if you are a Sketch user than Sketch file will be more convenient.

Hope this helps

Cheers!
