Icon Creator v1.1

Previous post here: iOS Icon set Creator

So here's what the updated Automator workflow does:
Asks for your base (512x512 OR 1024x1024) icon image then duplicates it, scales it and renames it, rinse and repeat until all seven (7) icons are created.

Icon-144.png = 144x144
Icon@2x.png = 114x114
Icon-72.png = 72x72
Icon-Small@2x.png = 58x58
Icon.png = 57x57
IconSmall-50.png = 50x50
Icon-Small.png = 29x29

The workflow WILL NOT overwrite any existing files so make sure to put your base image in its own folder.

1000 words.....

Test folder with 512 icon (can be named whatever you want)

Launch Automator app and click the Run button...
Browse to and select your 512 icon file
This is where the "magic" happens (lol!)

Completed folder with shiny new icons, yeah!
(Old image)

In the zip file is a second Automator "application" named "Create iOS Iconset Droplet". You don't run this application you simply drop your 512 icon onto it and the magic happens... sweet right? I know... :-]
