How can I draw a tick in my image on Pixelmator? I'm now creating my iOS app icon with 1,024 x 1,024 pixels, and have put a background rectangle to cover the whole picture, and on it draw a circle and filled it with white. Now want to draw those ticks like in Safari app...
I give you an idea how to create "rotating" icon, since you did not provided any screenshot.
Click on Pen Tool and create by one click a starting point in a desired location (begin at 9 or 3 o'clock of a circle), then press Shift and move the mouse horizontally to the second point of a ray and click again - you will get a horizontal line - the same thing you can create by using Line Shape Tool. If you used a pen - then click escape after creating the second point.
Next, Click on Move tool and select the this line, then press Command+C -> Command+V and RightClick and choose Transform - then rotate the line to 90 degrees. The same you can do by pressing Command+F and entering the exact rotation value on the top of the working area.
Duplicate the line and rotate it to 30 degrees - you need 12 line rotated one by one by 30 degrees, but you need to create only 6 since you just copy every one and place it by mirroring around the center.
The work takes not more than 5 minutes.
If you need more ticks - just move by 15 degrees. Also you can hide inner parts of the ticks by circle colored as a big circle.
- safari icon pixelmator file - you can just grab things from there.
