Hi-Res Tiger Icons

Following a request, I edited a bunch of high resolution Tiger icons out of Jaron Brass’ excellent Tiger wallpapers and saved them as PNG files with a mask so they can be placed on any background image or color. The Mac OS X icons were originally designed by Cesar Carrera (and copyright Apple — don’t sue me, please!), however I’m not sure if the ones included here are all his. In this set, you’ll find:

  • Address Book
  • the Applications icon
  • Automator
  • Bonjour
  • Core Audio/Image/Video
  • Dashboard
  • .Mac
  • FileVault
  • Finder
  • the Home icon
  • iChat
  • Keychain
  • “Mac HD”
  • .Mac Sync
  • Mail
  • Preview
  • QuickTime
  • Safari
  • Spotlight
  • Xcode
  • the Apple logo from “About This Mac…”

Each image about 500px in size, which is considerably larger than what you’ll find in Mac OS X’s standard icons. Here’s a preview sheet of what you can expect. If you like what you see, download the whole lot (3.7 MB). Personally, I’ve used a few in the past for sprucing up Keynote presentations given at MUG meetings. I’m not sure what other purposes they have — post below if you find them useful!
