I want to change a folder icon but i've been having some trouble. Whenever i do it, i get a white square behind it..

Here's a picture of the icons i downloaded from deviant art..

But when I "Get Info", the icon shows the png document type instead of the icon file..

I try to paste it to change my "School Stuff" folder anyways.. and it looks like this..

try opening the .png file in preview, when it is open, hit command+c. Then go to "get info" for your school stuff folder and click once on its folder icon. Then hit command+v and it should paste the .png as your new icon without the white background.
