Mobile keyboard app icons

Short description of how the mobile keyboard app icons were made.

Basic info

Original source file editing

Removed irrelevant keys using Inkscape, saved remaining key cap as pdf, imported into OmniGraffle for further editing and adaptation.

OmniGraffle edits

Text is 120 point, vertically centered, and then lifted using text offset Y -6%.

Other tidbits

To convert the large-resolution png with alpha to a useful iTunes art, do as follows:

$ convert images/Sami-icon3.png -background white -alpha remove -resize 1024x1024 images/Sami-icon-1024.png

To create the app store / Google play icon, do as follows:

$ convert images/Sami-icon3.png -resize 512x512 images/Sami-icon-120.png

Adjust the size parameter as needed in each case.

NB! Please note that resizing and conversion to the proper format is now done automatically as part of the CI/CD build steps for the keyboard apps.
