    In many pictures of snow leopard I have seen, the dock is black. How do I change this on my mac?

    I think there's a free app for that and get the dock from some sites.

    It also turns black when you position it on the left or right side of the screen...free of charge :cool:

    If you want the 2D dock (the same style that is displayed when the dock it positioned on the side of the screen), paste this command into Terminal:
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES; killall Dock
    To revert back to the 3d dock, paste this command into Terminal:
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean NO; killall Dock
    If you mean a custom black dock, like this; you can download the files from somewhere like Deviant Art or Leopard Docks (.com or .net) and then apply them using Candybar (Paid) or Dock Library (Free).

    You don't need to use any program to change the way the dock looks, just replace the PNGs in /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources.

    +1 for SuperDocker. It allows me to coordinate my dock with my wallpaper.
