What is FolderBrander for Mac

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 and perspective of the base icon. To position the text, simply click and drag.

Features:

  • Easily add text to folder icon
  • Rotate/skew text
  • Add text effects
  • Extensible with your own base icons

Just loaded Folder Brander on Mojave 10.14.3 and it works as before. Love this app so that it works on Mojave is a real plus.

Great app that makes life easier on your desktop. Mojave says it will need updating for next release. Hope it is.

Have used Folder Brander for years and love how easy it is to use and how I can now find all my "stuff" in such neatly labelled folders.

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!
