This is a version of SourceTree's new (2.0) icon with the blue portion hue-shifted to green.

(For the icon SourceTree had from 1.3 to 1.5, see tag “SourceTree-1.5”.)



I like SourceTree's new icon, but lamented to myself that it is Yet Another Blue Circular Icon. That doesn't bother me much, but since SourceTree used to have a green icon, I decided to make a version with that color.


I opened the original icon in Opacity, added a Hue Adjust layer, set its angle to -90 degrees, and set up a circular mask on the layer to apply it only to the interior of the icon (including the interior rim). For the 2.0 icon, I also added an Exposure Adjust layer, with the default setting of +0.5, and with the same mask.

Two Core Image filters did all the work. It took longer to write this README.

To use it:

  1. Download SourceTree green icon.zip.
  2. Unzip it.
  3. Get Info on both it and SourceTree.
  4. Copy the icon from “SourceTree green icon”.
  5. Paste it over SourceTree's icon.

Like any custom icon, you can remove it—and thereby revert to the original icon—like so:

  1. Get Info on SourceTree.
  2. Select the icon.
  3. Press Delete.


The original icon belongs to Atlassian. All I did was the trivial modification described above.
