I see this on the features page for this plugin: “MasterPress generates CSS-based sprite-maps for admin menu icons, with grayscale (idle) and color (active) states, so nothing looks out of place.” – but not what we need to do to make that work. Should I be creating icons using some special tool? To some specific dimensions/colors (I know they should be 16px square usually but does that work for retina?)?

Sorry if this has been asked before, I’m not seeing a way to search these forums and Google isn’t as much help as I hoped it’d be. 🙂

AGH once again I figured it out right after I asked the question – just upload a full-color 16×16 png icon and the grayscale is taken care of. I’m not sure if the retina stuff works (don’t have a new mac) but I’ll assume it’s fine.

All good, it’s a good question anyway. With retina, we do intend to add support for adding a 32×32 icon at some stage. We do make the icons look a bit sharper by scaling them with nearest neighbour on a retina mac, as scaling of pixelated images like icons doesn’t work well by default there.

The whole menu icons thing might be shaken up a bit too with a future release of WordPress. It looks like they’ll move toward simpler vector-based icons soonish, as is the trend of the moment.
