How do you make nice OS X icons? - Mac Software Discussions on AppleInsider Forums Toggle navigation All Forums Recent Posts Sign In How do you make nice OS X icons? luca Posted: May 1, 2003 2:12AM in Mac Software edited January 2014 I've been trying for SO long, messing around with Photoshop and AppleWorks and GraphicConverter, but I absolutely cannot make OS X icons. I always end up with a white square in the background and I have no idea how to get rid of it. Any suggestions?

Can't have everything.Additionally, if you have the Developer tools installed, there is a program called IconComposer in /Developer/Applications/. It works, but I still reccomend Iconographer (which also has the capability to create OS 9/Windows files and such.)

Iconograffer gives me a headach when ever I have to use it (witch is when I want to get an icon into Photoshop).
