Roman Nurik's Android Asset Studio gets a dazzling visual refresh

The Android Asset Studio, a tool developed by Googler Roman Nurik, is indispensable for developers and designers alike. Need to generate a nine-patch without stopping to think about where your 1px black lines need to go? How about a quick icon or two? The Asset Studio has you covered. But for all its useful functions, the last time we had a major visual refresh to cover was back in 2012 when it adopted all the #33B5E5, #holoyolo goodness of Android's older design language.

That changed overnight when Nurik launched a massive visual refresh for the studio, along with cleaner code in an effort to make contributing easier.

Android Asset Studio Gets A Major Update – New UI, Device Frames, Clipart, And More

Bringing some exciting news to the Android design world today, Roman Nurik announced via Google+ that the acclaimed Android Asset Studio received a major update.

First off, the whole site has received a new layout/UI inspired by ICS and its holo themes. Next, the much-beloved Device Frame Generator (which has been making app screenshots gorgeous since last October) got a huge update. The generator now allows users to create beautifully framed images featuring Samsung's Galaxy SIII, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, and Google's own Nexus 7 tablet. Further, users can choose whether the resulting image will have a shadow and/or screen glare (or appear rotated) before saving the finished product.

Google's Device Art Generator updated with Pixel & Pixel XL frames

If you're into framing screenshots with beautiful device art, the process really doesn't get much easier than using Google's official Device Art Generator. Perennially updated with the latest Google devices, the tool started its life as part of Roman Nurik's indispensable Android Asset Studio project, but since graduated to the official Android developers site.

The latest update to the generator, if you haven't guessed, includes frames for the Pixel and Pixel XL. Also at the top of the lineup are the Android Wear, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P frames. The "older devices" selection has over time been pared down to just the Nexus 6 and 9.

Device Art Generator Updated With Nexus 5X And 6P Shells

The Android Asset Studio is an indispensable tool that offers quick icon and nine-patch generation, along with a device art generator that graduated to Google's official Android Developers site. And since there are new Nexus devices (hopefully shipping soon), it's time for new shells to frame your screenshots. Today, the Nexus 5X and 6P joined the lineup.

Of course older devices are still available under a separate dropdown - the Nexus 4, 5, 6, 7 (2012), and 10 are all represented though interestingly the Nexus 7 (2013) has fallen out of the selection.

Google still advises developers not to use device frames in their Play Store collateral, since materials with device frames may end up looking dated and may distract from things like screenshots, but then again Google itself doesn't always follow this advice, right?

Device Frame Generator Moves To Google's Android Developer Site, Becomes 'Device Art Generator'

Following last month's major update to the Android Asset Studio, the studio's Device Frame Generator has been given a new home under the "Distribute" tab at developer.android.com. For those not familiar, the Device Frame Generator is a tool that allows developers (or anyone, really) to wrap their screenshots in high-quality images of real devices, creating a stunning context for your app (or mockup).

Along with its new location, the generator has a new name: Device Art Generator. Users of the old generator will be happy to know that it has maintained its original functionality (like options for adding screen glare or shadow to your generated image), and works just as well (if not better) than before.

Device Frame Generator Allows You To Drop Screenshots Into Actual Android Device Frames, Giving Beautiful, Polished Results

Roman Nurik, an Android engineer, recently gave the Android Asset Studio an awesome new tool that allows users to create gorgeous, high-res PNG images of any screenshot framed by actual press asset photos of Android devices.

The resulting images are, well, pretty. Gone are the days when developers or designers have to spend time in Photoshop layering up images and fabricating gloss, just to get an appealing graphic to show an app in action. Heck, even if you aren't a developer, this tool is still fun to play around with. 

At the moment the selection of device frames is limited to the Nexus One, Nexus S, and Motorola Xoom, but it sounds as though more devices will be coming soon.
