    That really doesnt matter. When on the desktop click apple + j, then click show preview or something like that. The picture will then be there. Tell me how that works.

    Sounds to me like the icon you are trying to use is not a .icns file. Maybe I am just reading your problem wrong. Are you trying to apple an icon, but it doesn't show, instead a stock "image" icon appears?
