Great but needs 2 things -
1. Agree with Hafsteinn - would be nice to select destination files. There's "Preferences" under File but we can't get into it to make the change!
2. Would be nice to have one button to toggle between "crop" or "fit" so you can decide to either crop a non-square image or squeeze it. All other changes I'm happy to do within an imaging program first.
Otherwise very nice!
Great App store purchase
Purchased, installed, created icons and uploaded to website in far less time than it takes to wade through a few google search results on how to do the same thing by other means. Great little app, well worth the price. I do think it would be nice to be able to set the location for the output, but that can be for v 1.1. Thanks to the developer for making my life just a bit easier.
Icon Files Generate Errors in Browsers
Just wanted to let everyone know that whilst you may end up with a 16 x 16 file with the extension .ico, it's not a true icon file. It's just a renamed .png. This will generate errors in some browsers when placed as the favicon of a particular site you're working on. Do not trust this as a true icon file. I've had to go back and rename the files to png, and run them through other true icon conversion software, not just a resizer and renamer.
The error you'll get is Image corrupt or truncated: <unknown>, you can view this through the console of several browsers as an error.
