Creating Your Own Mac OS X Icons (Mac Only)


In this video tutorial, we show how to make OS X icons. If you have the right tools, it’s very easy to make OS X icons. We use the following applications

  • Adobe Fireworks … used to edit graphic images
  • Adobe Photoshop … used to import graphic images
  • A Photoshop plug-in (shareware)

  • There are many applications and tools that allow you to make icons. Our approach is just one way of making OS X icons.

    Since the developer of the Photoshop plug-in does not recognize our efforts in making this VTC, we no longer make it available to the general public. MacHouse no longer recommends Mac users to use this shareware plug-in. Instead, use a freeware application to make Mac icons. For more information, watch another VTC titled ‘Creating Your Own Mac OS X Icons – Freeware Style.’
