    HOW TO GET HIGH RESOLUTION ICONS FOR THEMES

    System OS Requirements:

    Mac (Because this is the only system I've discovered it on)

    Well anyways all credit for this goes to me unless somebody has found this (which might happen)

    1) You must have the application on your computer for it to work
    2) Go to your hard drive and navigate to your Applications folder
    3) Find the application icon you want
    4) Right click on it
    5) Select show package contents
    6) Navigate inside the folder to: Contents/Resources/xxx.icns (X=Application name)
    7) Right click on the xxx.icns
    8) Open with > Preview
    9) When you open it, it will appear like a gif file but don't worry.
    10) Go to File > Save As
    11) A box will pop up and you can save it to any file you want.
    Recommended file types:
    A) jpg
    B) png

    Then resize your image to probably 59 x 59 pixels to fit as an application icon.

    Ex:

    iTunes

    Yeah its a different icon that you can resize to use for themes, instead of searching on the web and not finding it at all
