    Hi guys,

    I remember seeing people have the finder icon turned into a jackolantern, or a frankentstein, and the other icons turned into things but I can't seem to find this same icon set (or instructions on how to change the icons) anywhere.

    Does anyone know what I'm talking about or where to find this theme? (And how to install it)?

    1. Save a 512x512 32-bit PNG (you can use Alpha Transparency)
    2. Go to http://iconverticons.com
    3. Click the Options button
    4. Check ONLY the "finder-compatible icons (Mac OS X)" and "Convert to xx-bit" boxes
    5. Click Convert, Download the Icon Zip & Extract it
    6. Now that you have the Icon, Right click on it & choose Get Info
    7. Click the Icon Picture in the upper left hand corner & Copy it (Command+C)
    8. Finally Get Info on your App and paste (Command+V) what you copied into the upper left hand corner picture
    9. Your App now has a custom Icon

    • To remove the custom Icon; Get Info, select the Icon Picture and press the Delete button on your keyboard

    Thank you so much for your detailed explanation! I really appreciate it! :)

    Anyone know where I can find the icons that look like these pillows by chance (the ones with the square corners not the rounded corner ones)? (I can find the pillow pictures but not the actual icons :(

    Check out iconFactory and deviantArt

    iconfactory sells candybar which is an app that allows you to easily change your icons and gives/sells icon packs

    Thanks so much :) Unfortunately none of those sites had the icons :( I'll make my own if I get a chance (and if I can find where the Finder app icon is hiding on my system) and post them for everyone. I may have some time this weekend to work on it.
