This is a great tip
Authored by: cparnot on Jun 17, '05 02:32:48PM

With this technique, you can get any file/folder to have a truly scalable icon. The .icns file can define different images for different scales (you tend to lose constrast at smaller scales). Any other file you paste (even from icon composer) will not have that feature.
Create your .icons file (e.g. using Icon Composer), then use icns2icn to have the icon accessible in the Get Info window, then copy it to the file/folder you want. You get the perfect scaling + the transparency!

Thanks very much for this tip, it saved my day! Thanks Mac OS X Hints!!
