ClipToIconCM is a contextual menu plug-in which adds custom icons to files using pictures on the clipboard.
Suppose you have a file with a generic icon and you want to add an icon that conveys more information on the file's contents.
You can add a custom icon to this file using ClipToIconCM by first putting an image file on the clipboard. For example, you could use your web browser to find a web page with the desired graphic and then use "Command-Control-Shift-4" to select a portion of the screen to "capture" to the clipboard.
Then in the Finder "Control-click" on the file you want to add the custom icon to, and select the menu item named "Clip to Icon." After processing completes the file's new icon will match the picture you put on the clipboard!
