How to resize icon sets in Photoshop?
I'm redesigning the icon for my Android application.
I designed it at 512x512 and then rescaled it to 96x96 and 32x32. However, it looks extremely ugly at that size. I'm using a vector of an airplane as a part of my icon and it gets all blurred on shrinking. Finer details like gradients and shadows are nearly lost.
I noticed many other icons on the Android market which have lots of detail at 32x32. What should I do to make my icon look good at low resolutions?
Note: I made the vector of the airplane by tracing a plane with the pen tool in Photoshop, then using software called VectorMagic to make it a vector in pdf format. I then opened the vector in PS and used it in my icon. Am I using vectors incorrectly?
