    I made this icon and I can't seem to figure this out. If someone could help that would great.

    I created this icon and if you will notice it has a white background, however when I use it on my ipod the background is not there. It does as it is supposed to. However, when it is on my desktop it is not cropped like for example my HD icon. By the way I am using photoshop.
    My question is how can I trim the area to where you cannot see that on my computer if for example I want to use it on my computer as an icon?

    As you can see by the pics Preview shows it the way it is supposed to be however the icon on the comp. does not. Why?

    There is a program called Pic2Icon ( that will convert it for you. After you save your icon as a .png you open Pic2Icon and drag the pic into a box in the program and it will fix that problem for ya.

    I had the same problem when trying to make my own icons. Good luck!
