i dont know how to make icons. :(Well, you could just make transparent pngs/gifs or any other format in your favourite image processor and then use something like pic2icon (http://www.download.com/Pic2Icon/3000-2256_4-8881968.html) to make icon of it.

If you have Developer Tools installed you could also look into Icon Composer.app (you'll find it in /Developer/Applications/Utilities/).

If you have Photoshop, and want Windows compatible ico files, you may also try Telegraphic's icoformat (http://www.telegraphics.com.au/sw/#icoformat).

But most of all you need an idea... ;)

Mitthrawnuruodo
Oct 29, 2006, 02:56 PM
I use Icon Composer, which is a part of Apple's Developer Tools. Just dragging in whatever images I want to make icns files of and let Icon Composer scale them. It even handles psd files just fine. :)

Here's an example where I drag in a png file, 128 x 128 went fine, but when I drag it into the 48 x 48 version, it needs scaling:

60882

And it also makes a mask:

60883

When all the fields (that I want) is filled I can just save it as a new icns file.

You could use Candybar or instead, highlight the HD and press (command and i). Do the same on the imac icon and click on the icon in the top left of the window that appears for the icon that you are trying to copy so that the edges become blue. (Command and c) that. Highlight in blue the icon of you HD and (command and v) and it should change. Is this clear??

Does anyone know how to change the Finder icon and the System Preferences icon? The above method doesn't work... Thanx!Don't know about System Preferences, but changing the Finder icon is fairly easy, just navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources/ and find and replace the file finder.png with another transparent 128 x 128 png file. (Remember to backup the Dock.app first.)

Then navigate to /Library/Caches/ and delete the com.apple.dock.iconcache.50x file(s) and restart the Dock (log out and back in or use the killall Dock command in Terminal).

Is that possible?If you want special dvd covers to match the movies, then I guess you're best option is to just replace them by hand (instructions earlier in this thread), but if you have one generic video cover icon that you want for all movie files assosiated with QuickTime, you need to replace (at least) the /Applications/Quick Time Player.app/Contents/resources/r129.icns (movie), r138.icns (avi), r174.icns (mpeg4), r179 (3gpp), etc. just look for all the file types you need to change.

Does anybody have the icons for the Western Digital Mybook. I have the 500GB & 1TB Drives. I would like to have both if possible. Thanks. :)

Working on this one right now, but it doesn't want to function properly once I turn it into an icns file, the mask is all weird. Below is what it's supposed to look like, but it ends up with jagged black areas covering where the white outline is.

EDIT: BTW, works fine when I drop the file onto Pic2Icon, though of course I couldn't use that for an app.

There seems to be lots of WD internal HDD icons available, are there any Seagate icons available?

Probably asking alot, but could anyone turn this into an icon?

If you are really talented and generous could you make 2 separate ones? I have 2 of these drives, 1 usb and 1 firewire. You could put the usb symbol on the side of one, and the firewire symbol on the side of the other, where it says acomdata.

Thanks in advance if anyone does this.

I'm working on my first iconset:

Never realized how much work goes into creating icons. It is a lot of fun though.

These icons are amazing. Please let us know when they come out. ;)

Now that is sexy! If they made a black iMac I would break all records in speed to buy one! Great work

I just got a MyBook and had to make the right icon for it. I started making just the Premium Edition icons, then decided to do the whole line.

BTW: The icon pictures are from the WD MyBook (http://wdmybook.com/) site, so I didn't technically 'create' the icons. :)

OH BOY! I have that hard drive Now I can finally put the right icon to it. Thanks ever so much for all your work in making these

Mac 101: Change Your Icons (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=304735)

I have icns files that I created and want to apply them to folders, but can't. Short of creating an app with the icons and then copying from that, how do I apply the icns files to a folder or drive?

Right click on the folder or drive and then choose "Get Info"
Next find the icon you want to use and right click on it and choose "copy" Now back to the folder info box ..click on the icon in the top left of the box it should have a blue glow around it now. Go to edit then paste and the new icon will be there.

That's when copying icons from one file/folder to another. I mean icons contained within .icns files. Their file icon is not the icon contained inside.

hopejr, you can use an app like Pinki (http://www.mkd.cc/pinki/) to create a preview of the icon.
And then you just do the normal copy-get info-paste.

Where can one get icon composer? I tried registering on apples website as a developer, but I don't think I could get it with the free version. Is this something that you have to pay for, in a roundabout way?

Also, its not on my OSX install discs either, I've checked.

It's part of the Developer Tools that are on your OS X install CD's, or I think on some Macs have been a separate disk. I don't think it's downloadable anywhere.

I tried checking the discs for both the Mac Pro and the MacBook, it's not on there. Or, maybe I'm just missing it.

edit: you have to install the xcode tools, and then it's an option in there. found it.

So I'm trying to install some pretty standard icons here, I'm trying to follow instructions as stated by command + I on the image file then choosing copy from the edit menu in finder. But most of the edit menu is grayed out when I do this! Am I doing something wrong here? See pic. I would appreciate the help. Thanks:o

^^ You need to mark (ie. click on) the small icon top left in the information window (it will then get a blue "halo") before you can paste the copied icon/image (and you need write privileges, but that seems fine here).

Here's my first attempts. A bunch of mac pro icons, and then I made ones for my WD Passport, my Raptor, and my Maxtor one touch.

and a frylock.

I'd be more than happy to make some!

What do you want, a front view with the lid open, or more of an angled side view? What do you want on the screen? You just let me know.

Idk if people are still posting in this thread, but I was reading through it, and those Icons you all made are fantastic! I got my MacBook Pro about 2 years ago, and just started customizing it recently. I have been looking around the sites that make icons, and not many of them interest me, so I was wondering if some of you could find the time to make some icons.

The applications I would most appreciate them for are:
Dashboard
Mail
Safari
Dictionary
Address Book
Calender
Preview
Photo Booth
iPhoto
System Preferences
Microsoft Office Icons
iWork Icons
Inspirations
VirtualBox
Maybe Macintosh HD

I realize that was a long list, but I'm not that demanding.
If it helps I am a huge hockey fan, more specifically, the New Jersey Devils.
I have attached a file of what my dock looks like now.

Thank you all!

I've been trying in vain to replace my stock Macintosh HD icon with an iMac 20" (Alu) icon but seem to seem to have failed miserably, it downloads as a .png file, I've tried opening it in Preview, copying and then pasting it into "Get Info" menu which has worked for me previously; I replaced my Dropbox folder icons with the the Flurry System icons.

I've also tried using CandyBar but haven't had any success with that either.

This is the icon that I want: http://www.iconspedia.com/dload.php?up_id=34687

Can anyone help me?
