Android Icon

Applies Android menu icon style to image.

Requires Layer Effects plugin to work. In fact, this plugin just applies a series of layer effects with preset settings to image to achieve Android menu icon look. The plugin includes a batch mode, which can be used from command line like this:

gimp -i --batch-interpreter=python-fu-eval -b 'pdb.python_fu_androidicon_batch(None, None, "/path/to/pictures/*.svg", "/path/to/res");pdb.gimp_quit(1)'

Tested with GIMP 2.6
