I am trying to make an app icon by following the guidelines given here in Adobe Illustrator, but I am unable to figure out how to generate the colors for tint, shade and shadow. Can anyone help me with that?

Accepted Answer

There are two easy ways:

  1. Use the Color Guide palette. Open the Color Guide options to control the number of steps and variation between steps. Color Guide palette in illustrator
  2. There is a script called "Add Highlight And Shadow Swatches" that does exactly that. You'd need to adjust the values manually in the script, though.
