I am running a MacBook Pro on High Sierra (10.13.3) and using ver. 2.8.1 of Img2icns.
I have created several folder icons that I have attempted to apply to folders within my "Home" folder. The new icon replaces the original and then 5 - 10 minutes later the folder icon reverts back to the original.
What's up? Is this a OS 10.13.3 issue?
Thanks for the help.

    Hi Mark,

    I suspect this was an issue of the older versions too, the OS restore its version of some system folders by design, this also applies to certain files formats. Weren't you experiencing this issue in previous OS versions?
