Icon set Creator v2.0 (iOS7)

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 thirteen (13) icons are created.

Notes: If you use 1024 size you can (and should) use that icon to upload to iTunes Connect.

Icon-120.png = 120x120
Icon-144.png = 144x144
Icon-152.png = 152x152
Icon-72.png = 72x72
Icon-76.png = 76x76
Icon-Med-40.png =40x40
Icon-Med-40@2x.png = 80x80
Icon-Small-50.png = 50x50
Icon-Small-50@2x.png = 100x100
Icon-Small.png = 29x29
Icon-Small@2x.png = 58x58
Icon.png = 57x57
Icon@2x.png = 114x114

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 1024 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!
(Very old image)

In the zip file is a second Automator "application" named "Create iOS Iconset Droplet iOS7". You don't run this application you simply drop your 1024 icon onto it and the magic happens... sweet right? I know... :-]

To use the droplet, just drag the droplet to your Dock. Now when you need a set of icons, place your master image in a folder, then drag it on top of the droplet and give it about 3 seconds and its done. This has a permanent home in my Dock.

Updated: 14-09-2013 - removed the "[ ]" in the name - this caused a problem for some on the droplet. No need to re-download, simply rename and remove the brackets. Thanks @Dragyn at cocos2d forums!
