    Just today I was introduced to the BLOB icon set by Martin Lexow, and am in the process of revamping every icon on my MBP. I am trying to use the template he provides to make all the missing icons, and as a very in adept Photoshop user, I am at a loss as to how to save the modded template for use in Candybar.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Save each modified icon as an individual PS file. Then fire up "Icon Composer" from Apple (this application is part of the Developer's Tools package if I remember correctly, so you will need to install that package if you have not already).

    Drag one of the saved Photoshop files onto the new file grid in Icon Composer (drag it onto the grid size that corresponds with the PS file- probably 512 pixels). Save the Icon Composer file and then drag that saved file onto CandyBar and all should be well.
