    you'll need to manually resize the icons with photoshop or gimp or any other service. That is the only way besides shrink with resizes all of the icons

    If you want to do it by the icons name you will need to make a folder called icons and put it in the themes folder. So if you have an icon that is 118X120 for example you will need to name it [email protected] then make another that is 59X60 named icon.png so I'm not sure what size you'd want it exactly but you would make the HD image first of the @2x.png one first then just dive the length and width by 2 and just name it .png
