    So i want to change my folder icons back to their original state, I found a set online with the default leopard icons in PNG format and I tried copying and pasting in the get info screen like you normally would but all i get is that white little preview sheet as the image (see attached screenshot)

    I then found out all the original icons are saves in the resources folder so i tried those both in ICNS format and converted one to PNG but still no dice. can anyone help me revert my icons back to original:confused:

    Get Info on an item. Select the icon in the top-left. Press Command+X.

    That should cut the icon and return it to the original.

    I ended up trying this tool called icon droplet which converts ICNS files to finder friendly icon files, then just copied and pasted from there. Wish I would have tried your method though would have saved me a lot of work. Thanks I will keep it in mind for next time.
