Bjango's Photoshop Actions

I’ve already pointed out that you must have Slicy when working in Photoshop to create and manage iOS artwork or when creating assets for web sites.

The other must have not-so-secret weapon for iOS art is Bjango’s iOS and Android Photoshop Actions & Workflows. These are a set of Photoshop actions that speed up the creation and scaling of iOS artwork.

I start all iOS screen designs using the blue actions that create the necessary blank screen files (they even create a nice status bar). And I test the scaling of all icons using the green scaling actions which scale to all the required and supported sizes.

But the actions I use the most are the Scale by 200% and Scale by 50% that enable me to switch between regular and retina sizes to see how lines and curves shift.

Of course, I don’t use the slice tools as I use proper Photoshop folder and item naming to work with Slicy.

These actions are free, well maintained and can be downloaded from iOS and Android Photoshop Actions & Workflows. Installation instructions are included in the download.
