It's been a little buzz around this free VS2008 plug-in but it really is true and there is a free version of the Axialis IconWorkshop for VS2008. If you want to download and install it please use the direct link because you won't be able to find this page on the Axialis web site. Though to be honest its functionality is not anyhow better then Paint.Net which is also free but fully-functional. Besides being called a VS plug-in it opens up in a separate window. But see for yourself.
