Retinize It is a side project I created for helping other designers.
The Photoshop ation I created is a time-saver for designers and developers who are slicing designs for developers, especially for those who create Retina-screen optimized products - mostly iOS-apps.

The tool made a big buzz in design-community mentioned by almost all major design blogs and websites.
