    Question Selfmade Retina Icons - Help

    i try to make the icons of this theme Blue Matrix for iPhone by ~shoowack on deviantART that they looks like retina. For example the phone icon. But if i change the pixel/inch resolution the icon grows and if i reduce it on 60x60 or 114x114 its stay so big and dont look very sharp.

    need help

    Changing the DPI of an image does nothing, this only applies to printing the picture on paper. Resizing it bigger will not magically make a sharp, bigger image. You are just doubling up pixels, you can't get new information from what's not there.

    1. You don't, and wait for a new version to come out.
    2. Make everything you want to be higher resolution from scratch going off the style you want to copy.
