FolderBrander lets you quickly and easily alter the look of your folders. Mac OS X lets you keep folders in the Dock and the Finder's sidebar. This makes accessing frequently used folders quick and easy. The problem is that without customized folder icons, you cannot tell the folders apart. In many cases, having a short text label over an icon makes it much easier to tell what's in the folder. However, creating such an icon using a graphic app and an icon app can be difficult and time-consuming.

Just pick a base icon and type in a short text label. Two sliders let you rotate and skew the text to match the orientation more...

This is one neat program. It is easy to master, does what it claims to do, no crashes, and just adds an awesome look to folders.

Being able to highlight my folders in different colors and styles makes it much easier to find things. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the program hasn't been updated in quite a while.

Very nice, easy to use. If only it worked on folders in the sidebar it would have got the full 5* all round! Note- it displays on folders inside Adobe Bridge which is a nice bonus!

Excellent product that needs a few tweeks. Easy to use and is especially useful when teamed with other software like Desktop Shelves. Needs the ability to Left-Center-Right justify text.

On first use, I was impressed with ease of use and feature set (e.g., font adjustment).

Hi, where are the folder images stored? If I upgrade in the future, will the folder images be lost? Or are they backed up somewhere?

Just what I was looking for to easily customize folders I keep in my dock. Works as described, and lots of creative freedom!

Nice overall, but I'd like more control over text. I just wrote to Yellow Mug suggesting the following improvements:
1. Add choice of left, center and right justify.
2. Add ability to select vertical position of first text line.
3. Add ability to kern.
