Have you ever decompiled an apk wanting to theme it, but when you open the graphics you want to theme, they look distorted and blotchy?
Well, that's because all graphics on an android device are optimized before they're packaged, and this is what causes the distorted images.
Going through these graphics 1 by 1 can be time consuming, and isn't very fun, so I've aimed to change this by creating the Android Batch Image Converter. It's extremely simple to use, and uses the same algorithms for processing images that is used in the draw9patch tool.
You simply pick the directory where all graphics to be converted reside, then click on "Convert". This application will go through every png in that directory and replace it with an un-optimized version that you can work with in your favorite graphics editor.
This is obviously brand new, and it's development will rely on the popularity and usage of this application.
This application is written in Java and will require java 6 (1.6) or above and has currently only been tested on Windows 7, but should work on other OS as well.
As always, this tool is safe, however, I can not be held responsible for it's misuse and/or damages that it may cause to your mobile and/or desktop devices while using it.
You can download this application from the following link:
*** UPDATED October 27, 2013 ***
Android Batch Image Converter 1.1 - (04/14/2013)
It's a "Runnable Jar" file and only needs to be placed into the directory where you want it to run from.

Good Luck, and Happy Theming
