Application icon template

Interface 1 min read

Here's another little gift to help fellow OS X developers whose design 
skills leave something to be desired: an application icon template.
This is a layered Photoshop 7 PSD file, allowing you to readily create 
standard application icons of the form shown below. You can

Each of the three main visual elements is on a separate layer, with editable Layer Styles for the drop-shadows. 
Also included are layers with positioning guides for each type of element (main page, page 2 below, and tool). 
Thanks again to Michael for the <a href="http://disco.ucsd.edu/blog/computers/mac/programming/art/penRelease.html">fountain pen graphic</a>.



As always, enjoy.
