    Hey everyone,

    I just bought a new Macbook Pro about three weeks ago and am loving it. I've been customizing a lot of my icons with no problems. Well, I Found a site that lets you upload a picture and it generates an iphone style glossy icon. I was able to download the .png file fine but when I paste it over the folder icon in the get info window, The icon completely disappears from the top left corner. The large icon in the bottom of "get info" is a black document looking icon. I believe that the generator uses transparent layers to create the generated icon and I wonder if this is why I'm having issues. I would appreciate any help you could offer.

    BTW the iphone style icon generator is at this address

    Screenshots please?

    As well, for changing System icons, I highly recommend NOT manually touching these. Use a program such as *paid* Candybar and *free* LiteIcon.

    Download LiteIcon from Apple's site.
