    Hi folks,

    I've been giving Mavericks a bit of a make over and am not sure how to proceed with the trash icon.

    I have found a trash icon that I like and it's 128x128.

    When I look in Dock Resources folder I have 8 png files for my trash and they are called:

    trashempty.png
    trashempty@x2.png
    trashemptyreflection.png
    trashemptyreflection@x2.png
    trashfull.png
    trashfull@x2.png
    trashfullreflection.png
    trashfullreflection@x2.png

    As you all know the @x2 files are twice as big.

    How do I now go about changing my trash icon? Which png files get replace?

    The @2x files are for retina displays. If you don't have retina just replace trashfull.png and trashempty.png. As for the reflection files, rename them to something like trashfullreflection_original.png and trashemptyreflection_original.png, otherwise your reflection won't look right.

    If you do have a retina display, do the above but for the @2x files, keeping in mind they should be 256x256.
