Making large images from icons...

it completely depends on the icon, the application, and what the developer provided with the application. most apple applications have higher resolution icons in them somewhere, you just have to look.


for instance, for imovie, go to your applications folder, right click (control click) on imovie, and hit "show package contents." then go to contents, then resources, and then look at the file called APPL.icns, and there you go: a high res icon file. you can open it with preview and export to any other format.


as you probably know, there is no way to take a small image (particularly one so small as an icon) and upscale it with out a loss of quality. this is only possible because the developer has used a higher res version of the icon in the application, inadvertently giving us access to it.
