    Hey people, I'm have a bit of trouble changing my icons with Candybar. When I try to put icons such as these ones or these, the icon just comes up as a PNG file.

    I made a little screenshot to show you what I mean. It's probably an easy fix for long time Mac users, but I'm a bit new. :)

    Here's another example:

    Need to convert the .png

    I use img2icns

    Just drag your .png over the program in the dock, it will create your icon for usage.

    Thanks so much! I'm still having a problem though. The icon has been created as a .icns file but it still shows up as a .icns file when i drag the icon into candybar! :( I'm probably doing something wrong:

    Sorry, I forgot to add, you need to "create directory with icon"
