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.
