If your icon shows up in your button, then you DO have the image.  The image
file must be somewhere in your stack.  To get it out of the stack:

 put (specialFolderPath("desktop")&"/export.png") into tPath
 export img "myIcon" to file tPath as PNG

You can also substitute "JPEG" or "GIF" as the file format.
