The following instructions assume that you want to make a Retina Display compatible Icon. But if you want to make a LowResolution only Icon, just skip the 32x32 Pixel Images.

I have just used this process to create a statusicon with at red gear, when macro is running.As the normal icon I used StatusItem.tiff from Iconaholic (the default).But now this does not show as inverted on a dark menubar.

If the icon is a template icon (black and clear only), then add the word “Template” to the name.
So the first one should be StatusItemTemplate.tiff
Thanks. Works perfectly now.
