Hello and welcome!
This post is primarily for Windows developers that want to automatically generate app icons in Photoshop (CS2 onwards). It’s a no nonsense approach that will give you what you need; quickly! The image above shows some of the Fire Fu app icons that were generated from a single 1024 x 1024 pixel image.
To achieve this, I have created a Photoshop Action that will take your source image, and resize it to create all of the icons required for iOS 8+. All you have to do is load your artwork and press ‘Play’. For simplicity, the action will spit them out straight into the root of your C: drive. Here’s the full list of supported icons:
Iconfirstname.lastname@example.org (iPad Pro)
For graphics nerds that wish to know more, you’ll be pleased to read that each icon is iteratively resized from your high-resolution image, with a subtle Unsharp Mask used selectively at staggered resolutions to obtain the best possible results.
The action is free to use and all I ask is that you please don’t host the file or redistribute it yourself. Just provide a link to this page, please! I have done my best to ensure it works properly but please let me know if you experience any issues with it.
