Use Leopard icons

Whenever a new operating system comes out, many people enjoy peeking around the internals to see what sort of treasures lie beneath the shiny exterior. Nerdy, yes, but in the case of Leopard, that searching yielded some very cool results.

You may notice from browsing around the site that I like to use illustrated icons with posts. These icons were all found in a single folder hidden among the Leopard system files. The folder contains high-quality 512×512 pixel icons of computers and nearly any image used in the OS itself.

I learned about this trick from MacOSXHints, and if you’re interested in checking out the icons yourself, here is where you can go.

/System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/

This location can be copy and pasted into the Go to Folder window under the Finder Go menu, or can be navigated manually. CoreTypes.bundle actually appears as an application, so you need to right click it and choose Show File Contents. Open any of the icons in Preview and you can save them in any format you wish.
