OS X System Icons

Does anyone know where the default system (Leopard) icons are kept,
specifically the Home folders? I’ve looked in Core Services and been
through the Apple forums for something but nothing yet.

A quick search on Google tells me that there are a bunch in System/
Library/Core Services/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/

You need to right click on the bundle and choose Show Package Contents
to see inside it.

If you’re looking at changing the icons then there’s a great app
called CandyBar that’ll do this for you:

Hi Joe,

Actually CandyBar is what started it all. I recently picked up a used
last gen. but sweet dual G5 PowerMac for a song that came with
Leopard. I used CB on Tiger and before migrating from the old Mac I
reverted back to the default icon set but apparently some of them
didn’t revert and now in Leopard a few of the old ones are still
lingering even though in CB they appear as default Leopard they are
actually the old custom ones and nothing I do will change them.

And having looked in the bundle you recommended Joe I can find every
folder I need except the “Pictures” folder which for some reason is
not the default Leopard icon but a holdover from the old custom set.

Anyone care to send me a copy of the Leopard Pictures folder icon?
