Icon problem

OK I have a problem with this icon I am using for my app. I used a standard 512x512 PNG with transparency, I copied it and used the Get Info dialog to paste it onto my app. Looks fine in get info:

The problem comes when I try to view the app in CoverFlow. Check this, all I get is a big black square:

The funny thing is, if I make the window smaller then the icon appears in CoverFlow, but if I make the window bigger I get the black square.

Any ideas as to what the problem is?

You should really do the icon in Xcode!

 

Open icon composer, drag the the .png to the 512 part, and have it resize it for them all.

 

Export to .icns

 

Add it to your project in Xcode

 

then in the target for your project, get info, goto the properties tab, and put the name of the icon file (with the .icns at the end) into the Icon File Field
