    I have a folder specifically for school, and I wanted to change the default icon from a folder to the school logo. I did this in finder by going to info and pasting the picture, so now it shows up as the logo instead of the typical folder icon. However, when I put the folder on the dock, it shows the folder icon on the dock? Any way to fix this?

    Is that folder icon possibly a picture of a folder inside? Right click that folder and choose "Display as: Folder" instead of Stack.

    Forgot Matthew's method.
    :)

    Save the image in your directory and rename it so that it appears as the first item if sorted alphabetically, and then select STACK as DISPLAY AS option by right clicking on the folder icon in the Dock.

    Maybe MRoogle can also help you.

    Yeah, but that will only work as long as the first item (alphabetically only, no matter how the contents are sorted, I think) has the desired logo. So make sure not to name anything else in there something that will come before the one with the icon you want displayed.

    No. You're referring to a different issue/solution. The issue you're talking about is when the dock is in "Display as Stacks" mode. That's not what the OP wants. He wants the custom folder icon to be displayed in the dock not the contents of the folder.
