Added demo.sh script for Mac and Linux users.

// ---- Version 2.0 ---- //
Added Infocard icon generation.
Also added shaded versions for BTN and BTNAUTO (-s files)
Also added some instructions for Linux and Mac users in Readme

I also tested all icon types in game just to make sure everything is OK - it is :).
(small note: If you are using the -s versions of icons remove the -s postfix when you import them so they point to the proper disabled version)

// ---- Version 1.0 ---- //

Toll for automatic creation of wc3 icons from any picture of any size.
Currently supports GIF, PNG, JPEG files

Simply download some image, for example this one:

pass it to borderizer and voila:

it automatically creates bordered icons for you in .jpg format so you can easily preview them.
All files are generated inside ReplaceableTextures folder
(.jpg files use 100% compression, the bordered images will look absolutelly the same as originals, except for borders ofc)

And that is not all, if Mikes' BLPalleter happens to be in the same directory,
it will be automatically called to create compressed blp's

Read the Readme.txt file for details.
