    Default Can't open PNG files copied from my phone - why?
    Wtf, I'm trying to modify some png files, but every single one I copy to my computer (OS X), when I try to open it in Preview, it shows up as a '?'... Photoshop can't open them, nothing I've tried will open these files... yet I can open other png files that I've downloaded or converted just fine...

    What am I missing here? Is Cyberduck doing something strange to the files when I copy them back to my computer?

    Because they are encrypted. There's a link to a script somewhere on mmi that lets you decrypt them.

    Not really encrypted, just a custom non-standard Apple format.

    I am having the same problem. Trying to further customize the Buuf2 Theme, but I am running Wondows 7. None of my PNG images work and this program seems to be for Mac. Can someone help?

    All you gotta do to get a "de-optimized" icon is use ifile. Apple has decided to use "optimized" .png files with their icons. With ifile you can save the optimized icon into your photos. Once saved into your photos, just email the "de-optimized" icon to yourself, and there you have it.
