I use CandyBar (which is now free) and http://www.iconfinder.com/ to search for icons.

Rileh: I have CandyBar and didn't know that it had editing capabilities. How do you do that in CB?

Charcoalwerks: I just downloaded it; thanks for the link!

Oh CandyBar can't edit, just apply icons. I just use photoshop to make my own if I feel the need. You dont need any other software, just save as .png

I made this iTunes logo myself.

I like it. I was trying to use GIMP to make an iTunes icon where the colors were inverted but it looked like utter ........well, you know. I just can't afford photoshop so I think I'm stuck with GIMP or other apps like that.
