First, I want to make it very clear that I am a newbie in the graphic design field and I have no idea of how things are done. I am more a programmer than a designer.
I have been making a Google Chrome extension, but in it they say that the app icon provided should be:
The actual icon size should be 96x96 (for square icons); an additional 16 pixels per side should be transparent padding, adding up to 128x128 total image size. For details, see Icon size.
What do I do now? What I actually did is:
- Create a square icon (initial logo) of size 128x128.
- Delete 16 pixels on each side, so that they become transparent.
Did I do it correctly? I mean, the second step. I don't have any idea of whether what I did was right or wrong. I really fear that I have done something wrong that may affect my app rating.
Maybe, did I have to use the Magic Wand tool?
I am using Paint.NET
