    Open the front row icon in PS. Press cmd+U. A box will pop up allowing you to adjust Hue/Saturation. A drop-down box will say "Master" but we only want to change the reds, so click on it and choose red (depending on the shade of red you may need to later tweak magenta and yellow). Slide the Hue slider around until you find the color you like.

    Its not really a Photoshop question is it, its a 'how to change an ICONs colours' question? How about checking out other applications? Seashore? Paintbrush? One of the many dedicated icon management apps?

    http://www.img2icnsapp.com/

    Download that app, then just drag the images I made into it. It should make .icn files. Its should only take 2 seconds.

    Install developer tools from your Leopard CD and use ICNS2RSRC to make a resource with the icon on it, then you can do the Get Info trick.

    When using Img2Icns convert it into a folder icon, then the get info/copy/paste works. Apps are really just cleverly disguised folders so they need the folder icon to work.

    Try resetting the dock when you are done. Open terminal and type:
    killall Dock
