Structure

Rounded corners must always be applied to the base shape and to the details of a status bar icon shown Figure 7. All dimensions specified are based on a 25x25 pixel artboard size with a 2 pixel safeframe.

Status bar icons can overlap the safeframe to the left and right when necessary, but must not overlap the safeframe at the top and bottom. Final art must be exported as a transparent PNG file.

Templates for creating status bar icons using Adobe Photoshop are available in the Icon Templates Pack.
