Mac OS X | How to Convert from ICNS to PNG

A quick and easy solution to convert from Apples ICNS icon format to the PNG image format.

What you need:
- A computer running Mac OSX

Step One
Open a new Terminal window from Applications:Utilities.

Step Two
Enter the following command:
sudo sips -s format png ~/Pictures/OriginalImage.icns --out ~/Pictures/ConvertedImage.png

This command assumes your image is the Picture folder. If it is not then you must change '~/Pictures/' to the correct folder location of your image.

sips supports output to the following formats: jpeg, tiff, png, gif, jp2, pict, bmp, qtif, psd, sgi, and tga.
