This is a Photoshop document that, through Smart Objects, automates the process of rendering the various sizes that needs to be bundled with Android 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, enviroment previews and easy export actions that spit out the exact files you need for Google Play.
You’ll need Photoshop CS3 or later. Open the PSD file in Photoshop. Find and right click the layer called ‘Edit me & save' 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. Here’s a video walkthrough.
