Recap

The Finder represents files and folders to the user through icons. You can add custom icons to your project to make it easier to identify your application and its associated document files. First you create the icons with a graphics program and store them in an icon file by using the Icon Composer application. Then you add the icon files to your project and add entries to the application’s property list so that the icons will be recognized by the Finder.
