    For example, if i have a 1024x1024 icon, what application can i use to resize it into all different sizes for an icns? 1024x1024 144px 512x512 72px etc. etc.
    When i have a all of those i can just use iconutil.

    Of course, but i want an application that does it automatically, so i don't have to open 10 files and remember the exact sizes.

    You can use Img2icns.

    Drag your icon into the window, then click the "icns" button.

    I have deleted, and downloaded that app more than 3 times, for me it just outputs an empty .icns.

    It works fine for me, I can try with your icon if you want.

    Works fine for me too. I've only used PNGs with it though.

    I dont have any Icon right now, i have done it manually before but I'm coding a few applications now that might need updating for the Yosemite "flat trend". But thanks anyways!
    Does it support Retina icons?
    I prefer offline.

    Yeah, it just makes it the same along of pixels of whatever the original image is. So if it's high enough resolution it will work just fine.
