    How to use the iconography template to produce a 256*256 icon?

    Hi everyone

    First off, I am not a photoshop expert.I used the Icon Templates available for the Asha platform to create my icon.However, the resulting icon is of size 50*50.It is fine for the app as such.But the Nokia Store wants an Icon of size 256*256 minimum.If I scale the generated icon up to 256*256, there is some amount of pixelation taking place.I don't want that.How can I generate a better version of my icon? Is there a bigger resolution template available?

    Regards,
    Arun.

    Hi arun,

    Right now you are using the icon from the template, however when you are going to upload your app on ovi store, which must have to used the screen shot of the app as the preview. This can be generated by taking the screenshot of the running application, or you can create the psd file of the icon you have used for the app and get it re-sized.

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply.I dont have any problems with taking a screen shot.My issue is only with Icons made using the Nokia Asha Icon Toolkit.The toolkit provides a PSD whose size is 50 * 50.The PSD gets pixelated if I scale it.I am not sure how to scale it the right way in order to get a blur free image. Please guide.

    For this problem we have vector graphics.
    For icon work I don't use photoshop, I use the free vector graphic software Inkscape.

    There you can just export it to the right size.
    And when tomorrow there is a new device with say 63 Pixels Icon, I can reuse the work.

    After export I use gimp (instead of photoshop) sometimes to reduce bit depth, sharpen, or build animated gifs.

    Nokia has also made some templates for inkscape, and a step by step instruction document. You find them also in the Icon toolkit.
