Hi everyone, Here's a very small workflow to convert a (lovely) PNG image to a (lovely) ICNS icon file (that you can use for your node.js app, for example). Import the workflow from -> the github repository Make a (lovely) 1024x1024 PNG image, Select it in the Finder, Hit CMD + ALT + CTRL + i (like "Image") Et voilà! You can also use the bash script, with more options (png2icns.sh). Enjoy!
Although this seems like a complicated workflow, it isnt. This is mainly for icon designers. When you create an ".icns" file for the mac (which contains 1024px, 512px, 256px, 32px and 16px versions) and save the file (with icon composer for instance), the file's icon stays on the normal ".icns" file. This means you can't copy the icon and paste it in another file/folder. Some website tell you to open the .icns in preview, select and copy from there… THIS IS WRONG! it only copies the current resolution in preview, but not all versions. If you look at your finder icons, you will see they aren't the same when in list view or icon view! That's because in list view, icons are tiny and thus would not look great with a big resolution icon File action on ".icns" files Keyword "selficon" for currently select file in finder Download: http://d.pr/f/mPRy
