    Default Photoshop Actions To Help With Music Folder & DVD Case Icons.

    These droplets and actions will quickly create a merged png file that can then be converted to icons
    using any Icon Editor that (preferably!) runs batch conversions (e.g. IconWorkshop, IcoFX).
    Sadly, I've yet to find any half decent icon converter for Photoshop.

    But with the above, it makes the first two steps of a three step operation easy.
    The third step is swapping out your old folder icons with the new ones.
    With that. Well. Your on your own!!



    The set ups with instructions are available at dA.

    I use the Ico plugin for Photoshop for converting to icon right from Photoshop. I know alot of people don't like to use as they think it doesn't output correctly but I have never had a problem with it.

    Nice Action set btw

    Thanks for that L.W, and Thanks for the link, I'll take a look. The last one I used (a.n.other) was ages ago when I first got CS2 and the results were abysmal. Once I'd bought IconWorkshop I'll admit my quest was over. It's only since I've been knocking up a few PS droplets I realised maybe another search would be useful.
