    Methods for nice Unity icons?

    Hey there,

    So I added an app icon to show when my app is running in Unity. However no matter what icon I use the icon looks blurred in comparison to Unity icons for other apps.

    Is there something special to make your icon look sharp and not blurred out?

    Thanks, I will try that and see how it goes!

    The icon was not created in .svg so I guess I will try to make something new.

    Use inkscape for your svg-files. Best tool around when it comes to svg-graphic, imo.

    Edit: if you have existing graphic in other formats, then you can convert with inkscape, or gimp.

    Yup I already use Inkscape for most of my graphics work. Its the best!

    Im not sure what you mean by converting... Save as?

    I will have a go at this soon, as soon as im home anyway.
