'm trying to make a dropplet that takes a file (image) dropped into it, and copies the icon to the clipboard. I previously set the image itself as it's own icon using CocoThumbX. My intention is to copy icons from files faster -- and if possible, have another that does the reverse (pastes custom icon on file dropped in). Anyway, so far I have this: Code: on open files_ tell application "Finder" set files_ to POSIX path of files_ get icon of files_ copy it to clipboard end tell end open I get error: Can't get <class iimg> of "<path to file>" I attempted a command "do shellscript" but when messing with Terminal, I could not get it to do anything to the file. It too would say "access denied".
