Icons are a snap in OS X
Authored by: 128K Mac on Mar 19, '02 04:47:19AM

Only problem I've ever had was changing the default System and Core Services icon. The original refuses to be cut and nothing will paste over it.

If there's an exisitng icon, say the default system icon for Users, this presents no problems because it can first be cut, then a new one pasted. I have never had to login/logout to get the icons to "set."

Most of my icons come from Xicons because MacReporter notifies me of any new posts, takes 5 seconds to download them, and if some look work keeping I dumb them in my icon folder which I keep at the same root level as /Home's Documents, Movies, Pictures etc.

I'd been avoid fiddling with icons as have been more interested in getting acquainted to OS X since last October whenI switched full time. I notice m icon folder now contains just under 80 MB. Wile I did pick up a few at Icon Factor and afew other sites, it's easiest to just grab tem from Xicons when they pop up on MacReporter. Have visited their size only once and download abot 35MB of icons in 15 minutes. It nice to be able to pick up interesting icons without a lot of hassle.

Now if I just had that Finder Icon CSM I had in OS9. :)
