    How do you do this on Windows (although there can't be a generalized method that works for every type of file), and why can't you do the same on a Mac app?

  • there are softwares that you can open your exe file and it shows you every resource in that file.You simply extract(there is function to do this) you open it on photoshop so you can have the exactly size of the image then you re-assign the image back to the exe using the same program you used... I can't use this program on mac because it is for windows and not OSX... Nov 13, 2016 at 21:35

Many images in OS X applications live in the bundle. Meaning they are linked with the application, but not compiled into the binary. One exception to this would be if the application is using an asset catalog which compiles images into a binary format for quick lookup at runtime.

Take a look at Calculator.app that ships with OS X. In the application bundle, you will see a Resources directory (full path: Calculator.app/Contents/Resources). This is where all of the images are stored in the application. In the case of Calculator.app, there are a bunch of tiff images which represent the keys:

Calculator Resources

I'd experiment with replacing or modifying images in the Resources folder of the application.
