Authored by: mr. applescript on Sep 25, '07 09:15:26AM
To add or update an icon using SIPS or Image Events, just open and save the file using the with icon parameter. THe preview will be automatically generated:
set this_file to choose file of type "public.image" without invisibles
	tell application "Image Events"
		-- start the Image Events application
		-- open the image file
		set this_image to open this_file
		-- save the changes
		save this_image with icon
		-- purge the open image data
		close this_image
	end tell
on error error_message
	display dialog error_message
end try

I tried this script but it did not retain the old creation date but changed it to todays!! Maybe I misunderstand how to use this apple script?

The whole idea of the original hint was to avoid changing the files' timestamps.
