MLP: FiM Mac Folder Icons by Silkyprime MLP: FiM Mac Folder Icons by Silkyprime
Yeah, so it turns out I'm a Brony. I spent MetroCon helping :iconamelie-ami-chan: run her booth, and listening to people talk about it all weekend I had to check it out...and it turns out the show is AWESOME!!!

So, I upgraded my Mac to Lion and it started running like crap (I mean it took 5 minutes just to move a file from one folder to another) and I figured since I had to redo all of my backgrounds, shortcuts and folders over again I'd give making my own folder icons a shot.

I picked up the cutie marks and pony-vectors from :iconstinkehund: and started playing. I made these large enough so you even when you use the preview pane, they won't fade or pixilate.

To set these as an icon in OSX:
1) Open the icon you want to use with Preview.
2) Use command-a to select all then command-c to copy, close
preview.
3) Select the icon you want to replace and use command-i to
open the info panel
4) In the top left corner of the info panel, click on the icon and
use command-v to paste the new one.

On the Mac. Open the icon you want to use in Preview. Press command+a (select all) then command+c (copy), close Preview. Click on the icon for the item you want to change. press command+i (get info). In the top left corner of the window that opens is the icon, click on this icon and you will see it faintly highlight. Press command+v (paste) and you will see the icon change. Close the window, Done

Sometime you have to open the item you changed the icon on for it to take affect, especially programs.

Let me know if you need any more help.
