not sure if this is the right section for this one. does anyone know how to add a customized icon to a file (in this case a pdf) so that it'll keep it when transfered to other computers - at least other macs, although, if anyone can tell me how to do it in a way that'll work for both pc and mac (if there is a way) I'd be very happy to hear of it.
thanks very much.

If you have an image that you want as the icon, then copy it to your clipboard, ctrl+click your PDF and select get info, in the box that appears you will see the name of the file at the top with a small thumbnail of the icon to the left and the file size to the right, click on the thumbnail of the icon and press cmd+v and the picture will be selected as the icon for the file.
I have no way to test if it works in Windows though I'm afraid.
Also, if you wish to do this with images as well as PDF's then I recommend an app calledPinky which will automatically create icons out of selected images.
