If you find yourself constantly working with application icons for iOS, you’ve probably grown a little bit tired of manually setting them up every single time you have a new one to design. PixelResort knows your pain, and it’s likely why they created this awesome app Icon template for Photoshop.
All you’ll need is Photoshop CS2 (or later) and some design skills. The template lets you edit a smart object, create your artwork in a canvas (Icon.psb), and then automatically render out the varying sizes and styles of your icon.
The template supports the new Retina iPad, comes with some bundled textures to get you started, and it’s free. So, in short, go download it.
