Tunghsiao Liu’s Automator Workflows

A collection of Automator workflows that speed up your design and development process. Compatible with LaunchBar 6 and 7.

Installation

Paste the following code at a Terminal prompt:

bash 

The script explains what it will do and then pauses before it does it. If you don’t trust it, download zip package and manually copy the workflows to

~/Library/Services/
.

Other Notes

Please note that some workflows are using third-party scripts, the default path of them (for example

imagemagick
) is
/usr/local/bin/imagemagick
. (Installed by Homebrew).

Available Workflows

Create App Iconset

Create the following sizes of icon resources for your OS X app:

Filename

Size of canvas (in pixels)
icon[email protected] 1024×1024
icon512x512 512×512
icon[email protected] 512×512
icon256x256 256×256
icon[email protected] 256×256
icon128x128 128×128
icon[email protected] 64×64
icon32x32 32×32
icon[email protected] 32×32
icon16x16 16×16

The icon you created should be 1024×1024 with an sRGB color profile. You can read more about icon design guidelines here.

Note: You should always select the original file during the workflow, don’t press any key or click your mouse.

Create .icns

Create .icns file using

iconutil
. Command Line Tools from Xcode must be installed before using this workflow.

Unpack .icns

Unpack .icns into .iconset folder. Command Line Tools from Xcode must be installed before using this workflow.

Create
favicon.ico

Create a

favicon.ico
from selected PNG image with ImageMagick.

Requires:

imagemagick

Notes:

  1. The generated
    favicon.ico
    also works on all platforms include high-res devices. The different from “multi-resource” action is only 64x64 (4x) resource is generated, so you'll get smaller file size.
  2. Sometimes you'll get
    convert: iCCP: extra compressed data
    error when process PNGs exported from Photoshop, if you got this error, try to compress exported PNGs to remove extra metadata (for example using Compress Images workflow or ImageOptim).

Create
favicon.ico
(multi-resource)

Create a multi-resource

favicon.ico
from selected PNG image with ImageMagick, 64x64, 32x32, and 16x16 are included.

Requires:

imagemagick

Notes:

  1. You should only select one image, then multi-resource icos are automatically scaled down.
  2. The selected image should be at least 48x48, for best result, use exact 48x48.

Add
@2x
(
@3x
) Suffix

Add

@2x
or (
@3x
) suffix for retina image assets.

Copy & Add
@2x
(
@3x
) Suffix

Copy (duplicate) selected images and rename them with

@2x
or (
@3x
) suffix. Useful when you want to downscale with your own method.

Create
@2x
(
@3x
) Image

Auto downscale retina images generated by PNG Express, or any “@2x” / “@3x” images.

Notes:

  1. Export your original images in retina size, WITHOUT
    @2x
    or (
    @3x
    ) suffix.
  2. Create
    @3x
    Image doesn't downscale images properly at the moment. Need a better method to handle it.

Remove
@2x
(
@3x
) Suffix

Remove

@2x
and (
@3x
) suffix for retina image assets. Useful when you’re doing something wrong and need to recreate downscaled images one more time.

Requires:

rmate

Compress Images

Compress selected images based on file type,

.png
,
.jpg
, and
.svg
are supported. It auto detects the file type of selected images and compress them. OptiPNG, Pngcrush, jpegoptim, and svgo are used.

Requires:

  • optipng
    (bundled)
  • pngcrush
    (bundled)
  • jpegoptim
  • svgo

Notes:

  1. The default compress options for each type of images is the same as the individual compress workflow.
  2. It’s okay to run this workflow if you only install some of required dependencies, for example, you can just installed
    jpegoptim
    , but only
    .jpg
    will be compressed when you run this workflow, all other SVG files you selected will be skipped.
  3. The default
    optipng
    compress option is set to
    -o7
    (smallest file size and slowest), you may need change that.
  4. The default
    pngcrush
    compress option is set to
    -brute -reduce -ow
    (try 138 different methods and do lossless color-type or bit-depth reduction), you may need change that.
  5. pngcrush
    will take longer time for large images.
  6. The default
    jpegoptim
    compress option is set to
    --strip-all --force --all-progressive
    (lossless compression, remove comment, Exif and ICC profile, force all outputs to be progressive), You may need change that.
