9/1/104:57 pm MacMost Forum Question: Changing Alias icons on the desktop Is there a way to use a jpeg or other image as the icon for an alias on the desktop? — Kelly Small Comments: One Response to “Changing Alias icons on the desktop” Gary Rosenzweig 9/1/10 @ 4:59 pm Absolutely. Just open up the image you want to use in any image program — preview ill probably do. Then select and copy the portion of the image you want to use. Then select the alias and choose File, Get Info. See the icon at the upper left corner of the Info window? Select it and paste. Comments Closed. View all Forum Questions Welcome to MacMostMacMost is brought to you ad-free thanks to its supporters!
