[TOOL] Android Drawable Resizer Tool

Hi!

Can you count how many times you created a drawable for your app?
The answer is probably NO.
You opened your favorite image-editing software, designed a beautiful drawable, saved, and now of course, there's the simple but annoying thing, of resizing the drawable to fit every density.
No more! Android Drawable Resizer, replaces you in the last annoying part.
All you have to do, is to choose a drawable, tell the software which density does it belong to, choose the the res folder, and press Go!. The software will know how and where to place each resized drawable, with the correct name.


Requirements:
If you don't have a .NET Framework installed, download and install this:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa496123

Instructions:

1. Download the zip file.
2. Extract it including the .dll file.
3. Run the .exe file.
*Note: Both files need to be in the same place in order to activate the program!
4. Choose the source drawable density
5. Choose the drawable you want to resize
6. Choose which densities you want to export to
7. Choose the destination folder. The program will create a folder for each density selected (if the folder doesn't exist), and then insert the resized drawables to their right place
8. Press Go!
9. Enjoy!
10. Hit the Thanks button, or even donate for my work :eek:

Current Version: 1.1.3.0
From XDA: View attachment 1904989

To do:

--->Adding the abillity to decompile-->resize-->recompile .9.png files In progress

--->Translation to more languages Not in the next version

Credits:
--->ComponentFactory Krypton 4.4.0 great .NET library

Yes, I have just created a new version that supports .9.png files.
As for your second question, you shouldn't hardcode sizes in the layout file. You should use different drawables for each density.
You can use my application to do this easily, but you should also read this entry in the android API guides:
Supporting Multiple Screens
Need framewoek 3 or 3.5?

Need framework 2 :p

Let me know if you need more: CRASH DUMP (temp file)
Crashes when trying to run.
Code:
<Parameter8>System.IO.FileNotFoundException</Parameter8>

Thank you for your efforts on this handy tool. :)

Solved it, I was stupid enough to not include a dll file. :silly:

I uploaded a new version. The zip now contains two files.
Both files need to be in the same place in order to activate the program!

Thanks! Works now!
Much appreciated for the prompt response and fix.
Now if I may make a couple requests/suggestions.
It would be great to be able to choose multiple files(select all) when browsing for images to resize(for batch processing)
As it takes a while to do each one individually, but not as long as resizing manually, so that's a plus!
Maybe that is something I am overlooking on my end to enable that in that selection window.
Other thing I noticed was with the destination density:
I assumed that selecting a destination density would then give me that resolution as output.
I quickly found out, that was the opposite of how it works.
The density I chose was the only one not produced/resized, so essentially they are all enabled by default and the selection is to omit or remove a density from the process.
That's fine I suppose, just a little reverse of what I initially thought.
Maybe it would be better to only output the densities selected, I don't know, small detail I guess.
The last thing was that I noticed it tags each image name with it's density in the image name.
That requires a lot of renaming if doing many images.
Seems maybe if they output to relevant resolution folders, they would not have to be renamed at all.
Again, maybe this was my fault, due to using an output folder and not leaving it to do it's default thing, but I don't think that's the case.

Thanks again for your efforts on this.
I could see this becoming very useful, keep up the great work! :good:

First, I'm glad it now works.
Second, Thank you for the suggestions. About the multi-select, it have been in my to-do list since the beginning.
About the images renaming, you are absolutely right, especially after multi-select will be supported...
I am starting to work on that right now. Probably tomorrow there will be new version:fingers-crossed:
Update: I am almost done, and it looks really good :victory:

You can look at my progress in the first page in the To-Do section.
I am currently testing the new features, and already working on new ones :D

Update: I finished the version. Many features added!

Looks awesome! Good work! That being said, you should probably be careful distributing the ComponentFactory.Krypton.Ribbon.dll because it's not free and you use it's KryptonGallery control... But I'm not judging lol. Just be careful! :)

Also, I think you should put in some exception handling for your updating. Your web host's server's CPU limit was reached and nothing can connect to it right now, thus throwing an ArgumentOutOfRangeException when it tries to parse the downloaded update info.

You could also check out my .NET updater tutorial on YouTube if you want to implement that into this project - HERE

    Is this compatible with xxhdpi
    Sent from my 5th Dimension eVo 3D
    *Team 420 band of Misfits*
    Not yet, I will soon add it. It is quite simple
    So this software can resize .9.PNGs without any errors?? With the placers at the correct positions??
    Yes. There shouldn't be any problems. The software refer to .9.PNGs as regular PNGs, and it just scales the images. The placers' positions shouldn't change.
