Here’s an example of a tile I created for Photoshop CS6 64bit on Windows 8. In my opinion the tile look much better full size than just a tiny icon with some text inside a box. In order to make these kind of tiles for Adobe CS6 suite on Windows we will first need a image editing program and “OblyTile”.
At the end of this post I will be including the icons I created for Adobe Cs6! Each tile is done almost identically. For 64bit versions of the app I am going to have the numbers “64” at the bottom right side of the icon so I know what I am opening up.
- The first thing you will want to do is for each app you will need to open the folder of each application.
- Holding down “CTRL+Scroll wheel” make all icons as large as it will go.
- Take a screenshot and paste it into your favourite image editor
- Using the rectangle Marquee tool select the icon and copy it.
- Create a new file and make the dimensions 150×150
- Save the file as a png file type
- Resize the image to 30×30
- Save the file as a png file and rename it to program_Name_30x30.png
- Open up OblyTile. Fill it out like the screenshot bellow:
Click “create Tile” button and Voila… You have now created you own Windows 8 tile icon.
