    My Way

    1. Go into Google Images. Type the image that I want and search
    2. All the searches appear with hundreds of pictures.
    3. I click on the picture and make sure it's decent in size (although didn't really matter in the past)
    4. Shift + Command + Control + 4: Take a customized screenshot
    5. Click on folder and 'get info'
    6. Unlock the folder using password
    7. Command + V (paste)

    Although I tried your method (save as, click and drag). The folder then said 'JPEG' but loaded no picture on it. Strange...

    It might just be the configurations of my Macbook Air (2013)

    Yes, Jake, that's exactly how I do it. I don't use screenshots for these images, but Right Click and "Save As". Much better resolution.


    As I mentioned, I did try simonvee's method, but the screenshots made the usual noise, then disappeared to goodness knows where on my iMac. Anyway, I stick to the conventional way of taking screenshots, as I said. And they always go to the Desktop by default.

    And thanks for your help.

    Ah, simonvee. I was typing whilst you were and now understand that your "screenshots" presumably go to the clipboard? Then Command + V pastes them to your required destination?

    Funny thing is, I have a clipboard manager which stores everything and they aren't there. Anyhow, no worries. No space taken if they weren't conventional screenshots.

    Well, I clearly haven't helped much, but maybe between you and Jake (and me?) we can sort things out.

    Good luck.

    That's what I am beginning to suspect. Your exact procedure on my MBPr mid-2015 yields crisp images, so it has to be something on your system. Can you try my steps to see if that fixes it? Your step 4 just copies the image shown on your screen, not the underlying image, so the size of the underlying image is irrelevant. You might get better results downloading the image itself instead of making a screenshot of the icon. And yes, my way changes the unnamed folder to the name of the icon, but you may be able to avoid that. I think if the extent of the image file is .icns it doesn't rename, but I never change default icons so I'm not the icon expert here.
