Folders Factory for Mac1.8

08 August 2012

Change the color of folders.

What is Folders Factory for Mac

Note: Folders Factory is no longer under development and the developer provides no support for it.

With Folders Factory, you can easily change their colour, add pictures, include text or even make them look like "embossed" system folders.

Doing this will improve your performance and your system's appearance. You'll no longer have to read folder names as you can now easily identify the one you need.

The application is very user-friendly. All you have to do is: drag the image you want into the application's window, configure the way it looks, and then drag the folder you want to modify there too. Done.

What's new in Folders Factory

Version 1.8:
  • Retina support
  • Support of new icons sizes (256x256 and 1024x1024)
  • Added support of upcoming OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion)
  • Added Brazilian Portuguese localization
  • Sorting icons in Library
  • Now image always stay clear after moving object
  • Ability to scale up images
  • Moving object with arrow keys

Apparently abandonware. Unfortunate, because this is the exact app I used for years to make some good folders. Loved the embossing setup. Won't launch at all under Mojave (10.14.x), unfortunately. Link to developer website is dead as well.

How's the quality of the folder icons in lower sizes (like 128px or 64 px). Do they look sharp?

Nice app but it did not fix the problem of the monotone sidebar in Finder, which was the primary reason I wanted it. I also wrote before I bought but got no reply.... I would love to see them &/or Apple fix this problem so I can identify items quickly in sidebar as I could in Snow Leopard....

If you have a hard time navigating files and folders because "everything looks the same" so you're force to read everything - get this. Makes folder and icon navigation much faster and easier - particularly if you have poor eyesight or tons of files and folders to scan through. Very easy interface, intuitive - takes only a minute to make an icon - even with text on the pictures... worth every penny. I meant to give 5 stars to Stability - no issues, just couldn't figure out how to fix my mis-click...

Guys? MU's price reads $0.99. The MacApp store reads $2.99 Indeed, both prices are low. But, someone on the internet is wrong. ;-)

Congratulations to this developer for making such a wonderful application for the Mac. I've been looking for something like this for a long time. Can't beat the price either!

For apps like this one is why I love Apple's way of doing things, a simple and maybe stupid folder for beautify or tag them. This app can help you to catalogue (and also enhance exploring or management) and beautify your Mac. For me this app simply helps me putting the names of my TV show on their folders icons, or putting a picture/texture of my manga collection grouped by folders, catalog my development files by folders colors, and many more creative ideas. And are so cute and cool. :) (now my friends get crazy of envy when they browse my files) And maybe one of the most awesome things is the price, it's really cheap for the workflow that delivers. Thanks to the developer, maybe could sell it outside of the AppStore(not all of us like it). (please apologize my english)

For the money, this is an absolute bargain. Although it may look like an app to simply 'pretty' up you're folders, it can actually be a real time saver when looking for folders and really comes into it's own in 'cover flow' in Finder, Forklift, whatever.If you're into 'tagging' FolderFactory may not be for you. The application itself is easy to use and very polished. To use you need to have not only the app open but Finder (Forklift, whatever). Create your new folder in FolderFactory then drag the folder you want to change from Finder (Forklift, whatever) to the Folder Factory window and it's done. A note: The new folder is refreshed in Finder straight away. In Forklift I've found that sometimes Forklift has to be closed and reopened to see the new folder. For those that complain about the lack of a trial, I do see your point, and in the majority of cases would agree, but c'mon, give the developer a break... it's $2.99! The next time you go to a cafe/coffee shop you haven't been to before ask the proprietor for a sample before you put your money down for a cup of coffee.

A great, well-priced piece of software and very well polished for only v1. A couple of things I'd like to see added in a future update would be: - ability to drag an icon to the image/stamp window rather than having to do a copy/paste - a way to save presets into some kind of visual library for future use.

Quite nice! I made a few attractive folders fairly quickly. Perhaps Mr. George could add "Darken" as an adjustment to make the text/stamp standout a bit better at smaller sizes. And at some point - sliders for the rotation/vertical/horizontal placement? In all a very good start; thank you, Mr. George

This looks like a good app, but since I can't try it, I won't buy it, even though the price is quite reasonable.

Although I do not use MAS I'm surprised that Apple allow this app's artwork as I believe that Starbucks owns all the rights to said image.
