I want to make some icons different on my mac for example the icons for my hdds and maybe some of my programs.

I've tried candybar but it deleted my trial period of 30 days after about 20 seconds which was weird and dont want to have to buy software for this. Any alternatives?

To change icons: Find the icon you want to use. Right click (or CTRL-Click) on it and choose "Get Info". There is a small icon in the top left corner. Click on it and hit Command-C. Now find the file you want to change the icon of, go to "Get Info" again, find the icon in the top left, click on it, and hit Command-V.

If you want to change a few of the system icons such as Finder and Trash you can use the freeware app LiteIcon
