IconBuilder 8.5.3 Adds Support for Large Icons in Lion

Announcing the immediate release of IconBuilder 8.5.3 for use with Adobe Photoshop and Mac OS X. This latest update to our professional Photoshop & Fireworks filter for creating icons on the Macintosh, now fully supports large format (1024×1024) ICNS files displayed in Apple’s latest operating system – Lion. Designers & developers running Lion can now save out as well as import these high resolution icon resources seen in Mac OS X 10.7.

Also as a reminder, IconBuilder is compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS5 when Photoshop is placed in 32-bit mode. Simply get info on Adobe Photoshop in the Finder and check the “Open in 32-bit mode” under General Information in order to use IconBuilder with CS5. IconBuilder requires 32-bit mode in order to work with older icon file formats (like resource files) that are no longer supported on 64-bit systems. Once the 32-bit box is checked, the filter will function normally.

IconBuilder v.8.5.3 is available today for Mac OS X for $79.00 USD. Registered users of IconBuilder 8.5 are entitled to a free update.
