This Image File icon has Android KitKat style. If you use the icons for Android apps, we recommend using our latest Material Icons icon pack (please check our sidebar on the right). Otherwise, it's a solid icon pack that looks good in small resolutions, either on the web or in print. It's characterized by thick lines, smooth corners, and is optimized for 24x24 pixels.
We've received the idea on November 15, 2012 and created the icons on December 15, 2012
A small set of icons for generic file types like audio, video, image and document. There's already office filetype icons & some other filetypes (zip, pdf, gif,...) but nothing more generic.
