Icon Glue

Icon Glue 1.4

This tool helps you create icons for Mac OS X and iOS applications.

Icon Glue offers a straightforward solution to create icons for Mac OS X and iOS applications. The tool has a minimalist design and an intuitive interface that lets you obtain the desired icons in no time and with minimum effort.

The tool has the ability to create .icns files and .iconset folders for your Mac, icons for iOS apps, and iTunesArtwork.png images for submitting your apps to the App Store. All you need to do is drag and drop into the program the image you want to process and select the type of icons you wish to create. The selection you make will be preserved for further use. Before saving the results, you have the chance to preview the output files, so that you can check whether they meet your needs. For a better visualization, you can ask the program to show the results in Finder.

Without complicated settings to enable, creating personalized icons with this tool is a hassle-free task. Still, the application lacks useful features, like cropping a specific area of the imported picture and adjusting the image in terms of brightness, contrast, or other sensitive lighting issues.
