Mac OS/iOS icon creation?

Hi

I’m wondering if Intaglio can be used to make application icons for apps, both Mac OS and iOS? It looks perfect for the job but I’m not sure if the export capability exists?

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Sure - there´s nothing holding me back to make all my icon-smithery with it. For example:

Use “Icon Composer.app” from the developer tools when you´re in the need of the “.icns”-file format.

Many thanks Frank, that answers my question.

BTW it seems that Icon Composer has been removed from the latest release of developer tools, so something like https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/icon-creator-icns-iconset/id562977787?mt=12 seems like the next best thing I suppose.

Yikes! Still on SL. Didn´t know the IconComposer has been removed. Not sure about the reason.

Icon Composer is no longer available because of its 512px size limit and Apple requires 1024px app icons nowadays.

There are details here of how to turn an iconset (essentially a directory containing a bunch of icons at different sizes) into an icns using the iconutil command line tool.

That is where I got this info from:

Use iconutil to Create an icns File Manually
The iconutil command-line tool converts iconset folders to deployment-ready, high-resolution icns files. (You can find complete documentation for this tool by enteringman iconutil in Terminal.) Using this tool also compresses the resulting icns file, so there is no need for you to perform additional compression.

Note: Don’t use Icon Composer—it can’t create high-resolution icns files.

Cheers,
Frank
