Description
[Overview]
Adds a feature to Delphi's New Component wizard which gives the ability to quickly create a new 24x24 pixel image to represent the new component in the Component Palette. A DCR file containing the image is automatically created as part of saving the new component.
A special feature allows you to quickly create the new image comprised of a new or existing image plus an overlay of your company's component logo.

[Background]
When I start a new body of development work, I often create a set of descendant components which override the standard Borland or third party components I intend to use. I find it nice to make small changes to all of the new components' palette images in order to better distinguish them from their ancestor components. This is especially useful for non-visual components. Manually creating the DCR files, and hand drawing the palette images always feels like a waste of time. Besides, the only change I usually make to the original image is an addition of a small logo to a corner of the image. I created this wizard to automate this process.

All source code included.
