Yet another tool to create the *.png images required by Firemonkey iOS and Android application splash images.
Download source code (65KB, for Embarcadero RAD Studio XE4 up to XE7)
(Main *.pas unit is aprox 200 lines of code, easy to modify to suit your needs)
Currently this tool generates 42 images of different sizes:
The sample project uses an FMX 3D form containing a sample “logo”. This can be replaced to use a normal image instead. Using a 3D form might produce better output quality as texts and graphics are regenerated from vector data every time for each icon dimension, instead of stretching a single “big” bitmap.
The *.ico file for Windows projects is created containing a single image.
You can use Gimp or IcoFX to create a multiple ico file using the generated *.png images.
