Creating drive icons doesn’t have to be a terribly difficult process. Recently, we discovered a great app that lets you create Mac icon .icns files from your own imagery. Simply drag and drop and the app takes care of all the particulars for simple creation!
The app is called Image2icon, and is free with optional in-app purchases.
Essentially the app allows users to use any image desired to make an icon. For drive icons we do need the background to be fully transparent.
Check out step-by-step directions below:
Creating the .icns file
1) Open the Image2Icon app.
2) Drag your transparent square .png file into the circle.
3) Select the ICNS export option.
And save your file. That’s it!
