After applying an image to be an application's icon, the image does not appear but instead the image of Preview appears with the image's type (for example jpeg) on it. I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong, other than possibly using the wrong image type. Is there a proper image type to use (I've tried pretty much every type but none of them seem to work), or do you have to change icons from somewhere other than 'get info'?

The only good way to paste new icons in the Get Info window is from one application to another (e.g. Firefox.app to Safari.app works, not Firefox.jpg to Safari.app).
