    You can change your icon within your OS. Open the picture you want to use as an icon in Preview. Press Command-C to copy. Then click the file or folder you want the icon changed. Press Command-I to open Get Info. Click the small icon you will see on the top left corner. Press Command-V and you now have a new icon. You can use Grab.app which is built in Mac OS to take pictures that you want to use as an icon. Save the picture. Do the same instruction to replace an existing icon

    Search and download Micon. It's freeware wherein you simply drag and drop the icons you want and the target file or folder.

    you might also want to play with Pixadex, companion program to CandyBar. I heard the Leopard version of Candybar includes this already (v.3)
