Re: Free Icon Maker for BlackBerry PlayBook is now live!

Just an FYI on this (I found I had to tinker around with a it a bit to get it looking nice when installed).  This was for an AIR app, so it may be different for straight up BB apps:

 

I ended up changing it to 90x90 and thorwing it in a 128x128 canvas with transparent background and setting x=18, y=18 to center it.  AIR will use the 128x128 and resize it to whatever size it needs for the logo.  I think setting x=18, y=18 may be a little too high (when compared with the "browser" icon pre-installed), but it still looks good to me.

 

Thanks again though...was a great starting point, as I had no idea what I needed to do for it.

Re: Free Icon Maker for BlackBerry PlayBook is now live!

Nice app - Thanks.

 

Here's a couple of suggestions:-

 

- Have a preview over a non-transparent background - e.g. the typical leafy green playbook screen to give an idea of contrast.

 

- Convert and save multiple icon sizes e.g. the default and the 480x480 version for submission (maybe other standard sizes as well - could optionally do them all 27x27, 48x48, 59x59, etc.)

 

- Allow the background image to be moved or the icon frame to be moved slightly off-screen e.g. I had a small image that I wanted inside the 3D box icon but I couldn't offset it from the top-left to position it in the icon centre.

 

Thanks

Re: Free Icon Maker for BlackBerry PlayBook is now live!

Hi there, this may be a very silly question, but I've tried going to the blog / site listed in the original post to take a look at this application, but I don't see any way of downloading the application!?  I'm extremely puzzled as it appears everyone else has found it without trouble but perhaps someone could enlighten me...

 

Thanks so much.

I have not used it myself I believe everything is done in the browser; you do not actually download anything.
