Perhaps previously you’ve modified many icons, yet now you’ve become bored with those changes you’ve made; now you want to revert back to your original icon.
The process of reverting back to original icon is quite easy. Let’s say you've transformed your folder icon into stack drawer icons two months ago, you could do the followings to restore back to original folder icon.
Actually, the outcome of this trick won't give you any great significance to your skill in using Mac. What I intended here is to share several useful tricks and wrap them up in a fun way. I hope in such a way, you can memorize them better.
For a teaser, let's see the outcome for this fun tip:
As I've said previously, the outcome is less important than what you will get during the process. As Steve Jobs said, "The Journey is the Reward".
Let's get started.
Dock is separated into two portions, which the first one can contains applications and the other one can only contains folders. Here, you will be guided to mirror applications and folders. To get things quickly done, it will be best to change the folder's display rather than another way round.
As you cannot access the file information directly from the Dock, it's essential to know where is the file location.
Check out these cute icons. Maybe some of them don't have two legs, like humans, but at least they've got a head and two arms.
I've found several interesting icons, but how can I change all icons in just one shot?
The drawer above can be easily made with only your Mac OS X Leopard little humble Preview.
Everyday in your working days, you probably need to check all the same e-mail, news, website or maybe favorite blog site. You should try using Fluid.
With Fluid, you can convert all of them into each separate applications, which are easily distinguishable. And you will find that you won't need to cycle all your opened web browser tabs in order to find particular site. The icon is customizable and you can put it on your Dock.
It will be nice if we can get the png version of those icons. Of course, the icons is stored somewhere inside your Mac OS X Leopard HD, it's like Mac HD ▸ Application ▸ ... ▸ Contents ▸ Resources.
But hey, it's time wasting. Why don't we just use IconGrabber, a freeware to extract out those icons into image?
It will be hard to see what is the text on the podium. However, Ken Drake brilliantly decoded it.
Here is the decoding result :
God, I dreamed there was an angel Who could hear me through the wall As I cried out-like, in Latin "This is so not life at all Help me out-out-of this nightmare" Then I heard her silver call- She said: "Just give it time, kid I come to one and all"
She said: "Give me that hand, please And the itch you can't control Let me teach you how to handle All the sadness in your soul Oh, we'll work that silver magic Then we'll aim it at the wall" She said: "Love may make you blind kid- But I wouldn't mind at all"
It's the bitch of living (Bitch, just a bitch) With nothing but your hand (Just a bitch, yeah) Just the bitch of living As someone you can't stand See, each night, it's like fantastic- Tossing, turning, without rest
Are you looking for free distribution of icons which are Leopard cover flow compatible?
Check out these icons submitted by people on Apple Official website. I've brought forward some of them that are compatible for your Leopard Coverflow (huge) icons.
Recently the spirit of iconmaker fill my whole mind, then I think, "Maybe it will be nice if I can create my own icons". Therefore, I searching around and this web come up, entitled : "How to Make Mac Icons".
Then, I happily follow step by step. However, I don't meet satisfying result. The result I got only can copy the icon to my TextEdit, like this..
Of course I didn't give up easily and finally I found this very easy way to convert all kind of images to Mac icons, i.e. icns extension.
Thanks to Shiny Frog for its useful knowledge shared with us.
Whenever the icon worsen the mood, don't hesitate, change it. It just a few steps away to change the icon. Here are the steps:
It's nice to change the icon but don't do it frequently, the file size is increased altogether with the changing of icon. Oh don't worry, the file size increase only at the first the icon being changed.
What a rescue, RapidoStart can store as much as launching icon preferred instead of limited Dock storage. After experiencing RapidoStart, it's fully recommended to drop as many as icons instead of dropping them one by one.
Icons can be dragged anywhere on the Dock. There are two types of dragging, smooth dragging and rough dragging, and various types of usage with respect to the dragging style.
Smooth drag is usual way of dragging, and no need extra effort to drag into the dock, e.g. pressing additional key while dragging. However, the action must be performed in a correct way. The right files must be dragged into the right Application (or to the Trash, maybe?).
For example, dragging image file to open in Photoshop
These are not regular icons.These icons can help you do these things :
Now, doing those things is just a click away to your dock. It’s very useful, isn’t it?
Dockables also has three themes for you to choose : Regular, Colour, and Tangerine.
