How to make a Mac icon that looks like a Mac icon?

I have some digital photos of things that I want to make into Mac Dock icons. A flower pot for example. I shot it in RAW and it's evenly lit and looks nice. But how can I give it that shiny Mac icon look? Do I need to trace it in a vector drawing program? Is there a good tutorial somewhere?
