How do I change the folder icon images on Mac OS X Lion?

I have a new iMac OSX (Lion). I want to change the folder icons (for the hard drive, aliases etc.) to my own image. Going to “get info” and cutting and pasting the image I want to use does NOT work for me.

When I “get info” on an image, the upper left corner does not reveal the image, just the generic image of jpg or pdf (I CAN see the real image in the preview part of “get info”). When I paste, it just puts the same generic image of jpg or pdf.

Seems my problem would be solved if I knew how to get the actual image to appear in the upper left corner… Any advice?
