  • Tiny icons

    Any advice on creating tiny icons so they look crisp at small sizes? (16x16px) I have very simple vector graphics but when I reduce them they don't display well. Any tricks for saving? Also when I reduce them below a certain size in illustrator the component of the group shift slightly and it won't allow me to put it back. For example a white square with a black square centered on top - after reducing the black square is slightly off center. It moves almost like I have snap to grid, point or whatever but none of those options are on. Is this a limitation to working at very small sizes? Should I be creating them in photoshop? Advice appreciated

    16x16 what? Pixels? Millimeters? Points?

    If you're referring to pixels, my best suggestion is to draw them one pixel at a time in Photoshop with the pencil tool.

      ^^ ONE PIXEL AT A TIME!!! how boring (joking)
      used to happen to me, commonly i would remove strokes and would work well and for some certain times i would acutally draw into 16x16, and then blow it up big.( work reverse).
