32-bit icons to PNG question

Hello all,
first of all congrats for AmiKit, it really is a a great package.

Hope someone can help me, as I'm trying to export to PNG some Amiga 32-bit Icons (Masonicons:

AmiKit correctly displays the .info Masonicons on Workbench, but whenever I try to convert them to plain PNG files using the right-click built-in tool they end up being garbled (I think they're saved as 8bit?). Also, clicking on icon -> information always reveals the icons' garbled counterpart.

Is there any way to export these icons as PNG images?

I also tried the following from AmiNet:

But still no success.

Any help is much appreciated, thanks in advance!

Hello and welcome!
Have you tried to simply rename .info to .png?

Hi AmiKit,
and thank you for your reply.

I just tried, but changing the .info to .png results in "Unknown data type for nameofthefile.png".

Seems they cannot be opened by any application.

I'd really like to export these icons to proper PNGs so that I can also use them under AROS.

However switching environment from Magellan II to Workbench I am now able to see them correctly also by clicking on icon -> information (albeit they're cropped a bit).

Amikit icon format is a free, open source format known as PNG.

OS4 uses something different.
