    Hello fellow mac users.

    So i've started to getting tired of my old icons in my dock so i though i would like to spice them up.
    So i downloaded an icon pack with both .icns files and .ico -files.
    I did everything i should however one problem persisted!
    There weren't an image preview of the file i wanted to put onto my icon.
    Hence the icon changed into the standard file .ico icon

    [​IMG]
    It simply changed when selected to change (ctrl+c + ctrl+v method)

    Into this:
    [​IMG]

    Any ideas what i can do to make the image preview as an small icon so i can replace my existing icon? Any format change or different file type etc.?

    I know it's a "noob" question but give me a break i almost just converted xD

    Hope you guys can help me, cause frankly i don't know any better helpers out there to help me.

    Best Regards

    Lucas

    The easiest way is to create a workflow with Automator, which should already be on your Mac:
