I want to use an image as an application launcher icon for my android application.
The android guidelines specify an image for the launcher icon must be a 32 bit PNG image.
Please explain the steps necessary to create a 32 bit png file with alpha.
Or share a video link showing these steps, if any.
Simply save/export a PNG24 image using Adobe Photoshop which contains transparency. Transparency is the remaining 8 bits.
24Bit PNG = 8 bits red, 8 bits blue, 8 bits green
32bit PNG = 8 bits red, 8 bits blue, 8 bits green, 8 bits alpha
Photoshop automatically creates a 32bit PNG image if you save a 24Bit PNG that contains transparent areas.
