iOS App Icon Template [2.1] by shimapa iOS App Icon Template [2.1] by shimapa

★ Quickly render all sizes by editing a single Smart Object
★ Includes vector textures that you can build on
★ Exporting made easy with the bundled actions
★ Shows you a mockup of how the icon will look in the store and on your home screen

What’s inside?
This is an App Icon Template that, through Smart Objects in Photoshop, attempts to automate the process of rendering the various sizes that needs to be bundled with iOS Apps.The idea is to edit the largest size and have the smaller sizes automatically rendered enabling a much quicker workflow when designing icons. You’ll also find a selection of ready-made textures that you can build on and easy export actions that spit out the exact files you need to deliver to Apple.

Who made this?
This resource is created and maintained by Danish designer Michael Flarup. Check out his Portfolio over at Pixelresort. Got any comments or are you looking for someone to make you an awesome app icon? Shoot him an email: or catch him on twitter

How do I use it?
You’ll need Photoshop CS2 or later. Open the PSD file in Photoshop. Find and right click the layer called ‘EDIT THIS SMART OBJECT' and hit ’Edit Contents’. This opens the Icon.psb file - create your artwork in this canvas. After saving the Icon.psb, the multiple sizes in the Main PSD file should be automatically rendered. Use the Photoshop Actions bundled with the resource to export your icon files in both squared and rounded corner versions.

Does this support the new sizes for the Retina iPad? Yes
Where is the bundled textures you speak of? Inside the Icon.psb smart object
Do I need to have any Photoshop skills to use this? Yes, I recommend that you have atleast a little experience.
Can I use this for my commercial projects? Indeed you can!
