I'm new to mac, I used to use Axialis IconWorkshop on Windows. So I want to know what's the best icon creator for mac?
If you have access to Photoshop, then I highly recommend Iconbuilder from Iconfactory. Back when I doing this, Iconbuilder made the creation of resources for a variety of platforms a snap.
Since it isn't mentioned, I'll do it: IconSlate is a fantastic app for creating both Windows (
.ico) and Mac (
.icns) icons. Simple to use, beautifully designed and does exactly what it says on the tin. Highly recommended!
It's been years and things are changing, let me answer my own question, What is the best icon creator for Mac?
I think the answer is
iconutil for me. You can get more info by running
man iconutil in Terminal.
I also create an Automator workflow:
You can convert a set of images or a single image to an icon.
