iOSResizer by Blue Bilby allows you to drag and drop your ‘new iPad’ images onto the application and it automatically creates resized versions for iPhone 4/4S/iPad and iPhone 3GS with suffixes.

While designing graphics for iOS games, I came across the need to continually resize my images. At first, I created images in two sizes: One for iPhone 4/4S/iPad and an image half this size for the iPhone 3GS. But now, we have the new iPad (2012) and it’s getting annoying to resize images after each time I design them and create suffixes so I have assets for each platform resolution.

I needed an easy resolution and so I created the iOSResizer for Mac OS X. It’s an Automator script. You simply drag your large images — which are created for the new iPad dimensions — on top of the iOSResizer icon and it’ll create a directory on your desktop called “iOSResizer Images“. Inside will be a copy of your original image (now renamed with @4x as a suffix), an iPhone 4/4S/iPad image (with the @2x suffix) and an iPhone 3GS image with no suffix.

This Automator workflow can be used by anybody, but it was created with Gideros developers in mind.

Here’s some screenshots:

Below is the icon you drag your images onto:

This is the folder on the Desktop where your resized images will appear:

Here’s a list of example images to resize.

And, finally, a list of images inside the “iOSResizer Images” folder on the Desktop.

You can even drag the application to your Mac OS X dock at the bottom of the screen!

I hope you find this small utility useful. Please feel free to modify it, but don’t forget to give me credit for the original application! šŸ™‚

And now for your pleasure, the application:

Note that when you use it, this app will delete any files which already exist with the same name in the iOSResizer Images folder.
