What is Android Image Resizer

Android Image Resizer is a tool to resize android project image files(Drawables) with the proper sizes.

For example a image in res/drawable/xxhdpi with 300x300px as the base file will be resized to :

  • res/drawable/xhdpi with 200x200 px
  • res/drawable/hdpi with 150x150 px
  • res/drawable/mdpi with 100x100 px

Install Instructions for Mac OS X

  1. Install imagemagick

    sudo brew install imagemagick
    
  2. Install the rmagick gem

    gem install rmagick
    
  3. Install it with RubyGems

    sudo gem install android_img_resizer
