    You then use icon composer (/developer/applications/utilities) to make them into proper icons.

    i use fasticns. just drop a pic on it and it's simple to make file/folder icons from any image.

    and GIFfun is just as easy for making animated gifs. drop any pix onto it and specify the time lag for each.

    both are extremely simple and quick.
