Resizing Multiple App Icons in Photoshop

I’ve been designing iOS 7 app icons and they require so many sizes, with 1024x1024px as the largest size. So to prevent any quality loss, when I did it for the first time, I resized from the largest dimension to the smallest icon dimension, which is 29x29px. I’m fine with resizing them one by one at the “Save for Web” box if I’m only doing this once in a blue moon, but ain’t nobody got time for that when you are creating more! So I was thinking there must be an automated way for that, that is even less tedious than recording with Photoshop Actions. So I found this while searching about.

I tested out the script on Photoshop CS6 and did some minor tweaks, here’s my version of the script.

2 simple steps to use the script:

  1. Make sure app icon artwork is already done in 1024x1024px and saved as .PNG.
  2. In Photoshop go to File > Scripts > Browse… > Look for the .jsx file. And follow what the script says.
    Run Script from PS

  1. Must it been 1024×1024? I’m having problems running the script on a differently sized image (1920×1080).
