This is no longer freeware... (You get a few week demo then it will not save.) –  Vaccano Jul 11 '12 at 17:26

I know you preferred freeware, but I have actually bought an Axialis Icon Workshop license in the past and this software is arguably the best.

For Windows icons, use @icon sushi to convert to and from individual png images, and simply edit those in any modern image editor.
