    Hi

    Can anyone explain how to convert the default Adobe Acrobat File Icon to a custom Image?

    I have created a PDF of a showreel (Text + Images) and want the user to see one of these images when they have the PDF Icon on their desktop etc. Many thanks.

    PS: I'm running OSX 10.4.11 Tiger on a Powerbook G4. I use either Keynote or Powerpoint to create PDF's.

    Open up the info panel for the pdf. Paste in the new file image.

    At some point I changed the appearance of my PDF icons from the Adobe PDF default to where the PDF icons show a little image of the front cover of the PDF. Now I would like to change all of my PDF icons back to the default red and white Adobe Reader icon. Does anyone know how to do that please? I have Google this and see instructions for how to change from the Adobe default to custom but don't see how to reverse that.

    Thanks
    Steve
