Icon Publisher

Icon Publisher

Icon Publisher – is a Flash CS 4 / 5 / 5.5 compatibility extension panel for publish your icon in different sizes in one click.

Working only with square icon.


  • export format PNG / JPG / GIF
  • custom icon sizes in pixels (ex. “16,32,64,128,512”)
  • publish filename format (ex. “icon$$”, where ”$$” will replace by size icon)
  • output folder
  • all settings saved on publish


  • install Adobe Extension Manager if not yet installed
  • dbl click on IconPublisher.mxp
  • follow the installation instruction
  • restart Flash CS 4 / 5 / 5.5

How it work:

  • draw an icon in Flash CS 4 / 5 / 5.5
  • open Icon Publisher panel from Window > Othre Panels > Icon Publisher
  • set parameters in Icon Publisher
  • click “Publish”
  • get your icons

If you need extra settings for export format (such as disable Smooth etc.):

  • go to File > Publish Settings
  • check format you want to setup
  • then go to tab of this format
  • change parameters you want and click OK

Knowing issue:

  • if you install English (en_US) version of Flash CS, but Extension Manager opened with your OS locale (ex. Russian, German, etc), you have two way to install extension (say thank you to Adobe):
    • open Extension Manager with parameter
      -locale lang="en_US"
      and install as usual
    • install extension and then copy installed extension files from your OS locale to Flash CS locale:
      • WIN : C:\Documents and Settings\{ USERNAME }\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Flash CS5 .5\{ LANGUAGE }\
      • WIN 7 : C:\Users\{ USERNAME }\AppData\Local\Adobe\Flash CS5 .5\{ LANGUAGE }\
      • MAC : /User/{ USERNAME }/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Flash CS5 .5/{ LANGUAGE }/
