How can I make existing icons flat? I tried to find any tutorial about this, but there is almost none. Is there anyone that knows about this stuff?

For example:

Hi there, and welcome to GD! It would be most helpful if you could add some screenshots and show us what you have tried and where exactly you get stuck. This saves everybody time, and makes it more likely that you will get helpful answers. –  Benteh Jun 21 at 21:31

What do you mean by 'flat'? If you mean 'in the style of flat design ala iOS7, which is a different style than what I have' then the answer is you don't. You redraw them as needed. –  DA01 Jun 24 at 0:37
    
No.Not like IOS7 style.I mean ,like the flat icon packs –  user26302 Jun 24 at 8:27
    
Yeah, there's no one magic technique, it's a case of looking at each icon and then designing a flat icon that gets across the same idea. You'll often need to take a very different approach since you'll need less detail. –  user568458 Jun 24 at 9:35
