Working on a legacy .NET web application we have the following issue: graphical themes are made of hundred
png files. When it comes to create a new theme (ie. same icons but new set of colors), we take each
png file and change its HUE using
paint.net. It a very long process with poor results (images are pixelated, transparency is hugly...).
Adobe Creative Cloud we are trying to create a master PSD file that will contains all graphical elements. With well-named layers we will export them to individual files. We'll work with shapes and not "pixellated png" so changing color would be easy and clean. Moreover we will be able to change all icons' color in a row.
Icons aren't the same size and most of them doesn't "fit" content: for instance, one icon file is
27x27 with graphical content sized
13x18 at bottom right corner. Photoshop fits the layer to the graphical content: how to force it to a size of
27x27 and keep transparent content around the
13x18 painted area? Size can be
50x10 or ...
