Yes, with that third party app.

My problem was that the default medium size uses a non-standard icon size of 18x18, which I haven't been able to include in an icns file. Though most of the new sizes are ready, I couldn't release them because of that. I'll do an update and remove that message when I figure it out.

Thanks!

Thank you.

These are for personal use only, so I would appreciate it if you did not. Instead, check out Project Icons, which you can use in any website, app or project you want.

would you share the background image to use it for finder?
If you have the psd would be better :D

That is just a small image I made for the preview. I don't have one large enough for the Finder.

I'm not sure, but for the icons below Favorites, I assume it's as easy as changing the shortcut icon from properties.

For the libraries, you would probably have to change the library icon's 16px size.

how do i locate the default internal hard drive icon and icons like that? i need to edit it so i can make the 16x16 your silverscreen one in iconcomposer :)

It's in /System/Library/Extensions/IOStorageFamily.kext/Contents/Resources.

Be very careful when editing extensions and back-up before changing anything. When you're done, open Disk Utility and run Repair Permissions on your boot partition.

hi.

may i ask you where the other sidebar-icons are located at ?
there must be another way to change the sidebar icons without changing the folder icons, right ?!

thank you in advance for taking the time answering this question (if you can)

greetings and good icon replacement set !

The default sidebar icons are located in /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources.

For other icons the best way to change their sidebar icons is to change the 16px icon image of your folder or file (you can use a tool like Icon Composer or even Preview, I think, for this). However, that will also change what they look like in other places as well, such as the titlebar. The alternative is to edit ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sidebarlists.plist, but the Finder will overwrite it with the correct icons in certain situations.

hi bogo-d and thank you very much, for your fast reply.
so it is better then to change the icons directly withing the Core.Types.bundle

i´ll go with that solution.
thanks a again and have a nice day !!
