    1. Double-click any picture to open in Preview
    2. Command + C to copy the picture
    3. Right-click on the folder you want to change
    4. Select "Get Info"
    5. Click the folder icon in the top left of the "Get Info" window
    6. Command + V to paste the picture
    7. Done

    yes, i know how to do it, but my picture didn't work. Thats why i asked if i needed to convert from JPEG to something else.

    No, JPEGs work just fine.

    Original folder:
    Picture 8.jpg
    Copy JPEG in Finder and paste:
    Picture 9.jpg
    Open JPEG in Preview, then copy and paste:
    Picture 10.jpg
