The easiest way is to create your own resource file with a resource editor that contains your icons, then include that resource file in your application by inserting this line into the DPR file

{$R MyIcons.res}

Hi,

If you want to add icons to .res file of your project, you can use Image Editor from Tools menu. In Image Editor open your existing .res file and add or create icons or create new .res file.
