    I've been using the TweetDeck app and the stock black icon sorta melts into my "Black Shelf" dock.
    I found a couple of icons to change it into something different, only one problem...
    it wont let me!

    Originally I was opening the "get info" and copy/pasting the images
    If that failed, I was using img2icn and that worked out.

    But this wont let me change anything! Even when I've unlocked it!

    Any ideas?

    I realize this thread is almost a year old, but after some Googling I found the answer, and thought it might help anyone else having the same issue.

    First off, make sure the icon you want to use is named icon.icns

    Make sure TweetDeck is closed, and locate the TweetDeck application (usually found, appropriately enough, in your Applications directory)

    Right-click (or option-click) the application and select “Show package contents”

    Navigate to the “Resources” directory, and drag the “Icon.icns” file you created earlier into it (you may have to input an administrative password to overwrite the default icon)
