Replacement OSX Yosemite dock icons

IT seems that my last post about Adobe’s launch of their new “Brackets” modern text editor generated more discussion around the OSX Yosemite dock icons in the lead image than anything else.

I received a bunch of messages specifically about the Sublime Text and Sketch icons. To that end, here’s a selection of great looking OSX Yosemite dock icons you can download and apply to your own apps to achieve the same kind of look.

Below the icons is a quick guide on the easiest way to update your system and application icons. Don’t worry, I’ve got you sorted!

How to change your icons

There’s a few manual methods out there to get the job done, but the good folk at Freemacsoft have done all the hard work for you bundling the process into an easy-to-use application called LiteIcon.

Feeemacsoft's LiteIcon

It’s a free download for OSX Mavericks and Yosemite users, so check it out.

Oh, and one last thing…

It’s best to use .icns files for this kind of thing, so if you get your hands on a decent .png icon at any stage, head on over to the iConvert Icons website where you can easily create and download the appropriate .icns file “for Finder”.

    Hey, thanks for the icon list and the tools linked at the end there 🙂

    Quick note: The Slack dribbble link has an extra ‘h’ at the beginning

    Cheers!

    Cool icon set! Do you know how to make Firefox’s icon persist after one downloads a file? It resets back to the default one. Thanks!
