I don't know how to make an icon file, and since I drew this one by hand I just had to make it a .png. But what about something more like this...

 

I hope you don't mind but I just hoodwinked it. All you have to do to make it an icon is go to logos 4 in the finder, right click, and hit info and drag  it to the position of the current icon until you see the green + and drop

 

I've also just made this my Logos Icon!  I love it!  As a small aside one of the things I love about my Mac is that to change the icon for an app it really is as easy as "drag and drop"!  I also had that rainbow logos icon for v1 mac logos, but the one you've created here seems to me what the Mac icon should be based upon.

This is really what the Mac community is about. If we don't like your icon. We make our own and share .

I tried to give L4 a custom Icon but couldn't get the icon to change, how did you all do it?

I couldn't get drag and drop to work so here is what I did.

I think you have to make sure you have the permission turned on.

Find the app file in either Search or the Application Folder.  CONTROL click and "Get info" and click unlock at the bottom right of the "Get Info" panel. I simply COMMAND - C / copied the .png file and "left clicked" the icon in "Get info". I then COMMAND - V and it was done.

Jason,

the file with the Bible and magnifying glass, can be copied here. just "right click" the file and "save as". i recommend saving it to a place you want it to be and give it a special name so you can find it again if you loose it.

Go to Logos in Finder, right click (control click) and click "get info".

With the info pane open drag your icon to the location of the existing icon at the top  left.

Everyone with custom icons the new Alpha may replace it  with the default icon.

Any further direction someone could give me?  I watched the video and everything, did what it said, even tried restarting the computer, removing the app from the dock, re-adding it, etc...but all I get is a "preview PNG" type image.  I don't get the actual icon.  I'm trying to change the older Libronix for Mac 1 icon (Not Logos 4).

Check my profile and email me . We can talk or chat through iChat and I can walk you through it.

Thanks Heath!

If anyone else had similar trouble, my problem was that when I downloaded the file from the forum it changed it to a PNG format (if it wasn't already in that format), and it wouldn't let me then put it in as an icon.  But dragging it directly off the website into the info icon tab worked.

Not bad!  I wish I had more artistic skill so I could try some variations as well.  As for your two new icons I prefer the red book and logos symbol to the other although both are improvements.  I guess I just prefer non-square icons.

John,

Thanks. As someone whose artistic skills are zilch I am grateful for your generosity and awestruck by your talent. I have now got a cool blue icon for L4Mac in my Dock. Cool

BTW I'd love your red Bible icon for Logos for Mac 1. Any chance of making it available? Yes

Wow, I really love ALL of the icons people created. Now if I could just learn how to use one of them on my system.

Great question and thanks for asking.
