Android Drawable Tool

ecently I've been spending time going through the Android SDK and experimenting with my Nexus 7 Android tablet. I've mostly been interesting in creating tools to bridge PCs and Android devices. After settling in on my tool chain preferences (screen shot here) I finished writing unit tests and my first cross platform Android tool.

Below is a screen shot of my Android drawable dpi desktop application. The application helps Android developers by scaling their image resources (pngs only at the moment) to a user provided physical size, and output resized copies of the image to your Android project resources folder. It automatically finds the appropriate folders in your Android projects and uses a high quality scaling algorithm. It also previews the details of how the image will be scaled at each dpi level before you tell it to scale and copy image to your project's resources.

If you want to try out the tool, download links are here:

Source code is available here. Until next time, keep having fun!
