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!
If you just have a
tiff file that you need to make into an icon, you can use the built-in command line program
(This is probably not the best all-around answer, but it has been useful to me.)
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.
