Yep, i also don't like how those little arrows look there. But smaller icon size in that toolbar very hard to read, and also same "+" and "-" icons (200010 - IDP_SUB and 200009 - IDP_ADD) used globally in all other places, so make them smaller means they became smaller everywhere.
I was thinking to request developers to add invert effect to tiny arrow icons overlapped areas, but not sure if it make things look better. See example sketch:

That tiny toolbar and tiny adjustment panel icons where very problematic place from beginning. As you can see even icon alignment on Windows is very different from macOS. Probably it may depend of system font size? On your screenshot Eye and Checkbox icon rectangle and some other controls arrows are very tiny, but on my screenshot it is same 13 pixel size as other icons. Have no idea how it look on high dpi displays...

It overlaps with little triangle arrow even if change icon size to 11 px instead of 13px:

Just got an idea for possible alternate application logo icon concept. This is just a basic sketch concept that illustrate multipurpose nature of PhotoLine. It could be drawn further with more details, shades, strokes and with less saturated colors... It also could be some vector path elements somewhere to illustrate vector nature of PhotoLine as well. This is rather simple but original concept, i quickly googled for similar images and logos and seems there are no similarities for it... Let me know what you think...

I don't like this coloured thing...
The current Icon shows PL at one glance to start it.
