    Cherri whats weird is there is no file ext to them and if i add one on it still wont open in any mac application? Even the photoshop PICT file wont open in Photoshop so I don't know. The files were dloaded from a Mac osx supported dload site? I've used the icons on my computer just fine, just can't convert them?

    Shauntos - Give this a try.. http://www.jimmcgowan.net/Site/ImageTool.html

    Can you PM me one of the files? I want to try on my Mac, maybe I'll better understand what it is.

    Keep in mind, if you downloaded icon files FOR the Mac, it could be that they were designed for something like CandyBar (Its a customization app, and it needs the icons in a specific format.. I've run into that before, but never spent the time trying to figure out how to convert them to standard Mac icons.

    Steven, I actually have Photoshop and it won't even open these files. I have the candy bar app as well and the icons work well with it. I'll see if i can pm you guys a couple files to see what you can do with them.
