I am a new subscriber to 1Password, and am currently setting up the various Logins, Identities, etc. I must first say I have found the software to be very intuitive, and I am very happy with my decision to subscribe.
As part of the setting up process, I am trying to ensure the icons associated with my entries are of the best possible quality. When I create a new Login and then save, many times, after a short delay, an icon is added automatically. Initially I assumed this was coming from the website to which the Login refers, but now I understand it is instead coming from a database of high resolution Smart Icons maintained by 1Password.
In some cases, no icon is added automatically. I assume this is because there is no relevant icon in the Smart Icon database. In such cases I have been using a search engine to find suitable high resolution icons. and have added these manually. Sometimes I have used Microsoft Paint as an intermediate step. This is also what I have been doing with regards to icons in the Identities, Secure Notes and Bank Accounts Categories. As there is no web site address in these entries it is impossible for a Smart Icon to be automatically added. Using a search engine to find these icons is easy to do, but I was wondering if this is the best way to add missing icons? Perhaps there is a better way?
Regarding the resolution of icons, I read that the Smart Icons are typically 512x512. I have tried to find similar resolution icons for those I have been adding manually. Without wishing to get technical, are any icon resolutions downscaled at any stage? I am asking this because in some cases it is difficult to find icons of 512x512 or greater and if they are downscaled when I add and save them, then there is no point in searching for high resolution icons. Also, I notice that if I right click on an icon and select "save to disk", the icon is saved at 64x64.
Many thanks in advance for any help or advice.
