Add Folder Icons

3.0.5
24 April 2018

Add folder icons to ordinary folders.

Overview

Add Folder Icons lets you add icons to ordinary folders, which are always displayed with the same boring, old, blue folder icon. Sometimes you might want to liven this up. Perhaps you browse a music collection through the Finder as well as in iTunes, or have photos that you browse in the Finder as well as in iPhoto. You might create artwork, or own a collection of home movie DVD files. Whatever you have, one thing is for sure: the standard blue folder icon doesn't give you many clues about the folder's contents.

This is where Add Folder Icons comes in. It uses any pictures found inside a given folder to create a customised icon based on a configurable icon style. There is a set of built-in icon styles and you can create your own.

What's new in Add Folder Icons

Version 3.0.5:
  •  Fixes a bug that prevented the application working properly on OS X 10.9 or earlier
  •  Adds an extra Help page providing a guide to setting up Folder Actions for automated icon addition

Sorry to be a pedantic old fart but the Title of Mister is conferred on e by someone else who recognises that person to be a gentleman. Its terribly bad form to call yourself Mister because it means you are calling yourself a gentleman which is a total no-no. Apart from that I like the idea of your app.

This works great for partially solving a problem I had at work where I needed to assign graphic representations of imposition layouts to their hot folders in order to be able to quickly choose a hot folder, BUT this would be so much better if there was an option for a style that makes the image icon as large as possible instead of reducing the image to allow for a folder background even when you don't want a folder background.

Update to my previous comment. After working more with the program I realize now that I can get pretty much what I want by creating a Cover format with "Search for a single cover or box art image" checked and "Crop each image so it fits into a square frame" UNchecked. Due to a bug in High Sierra that distorts icon graphics, checking "Add white border and background" is probably a good idea also. Drop shadow is optional.

Wow, Have I been looking for this type of app. Every time I would look up anything to do with viewing contents of folders I would get the Xray folder script for QuickLook. You have saved me HOURS of work with my folders. I like having a logo on them and I just go through and pick one and then go paste it but I have thousands of folder. I wish it supported EPS and AI files. Thank You!

Look it up in a dictionary. Your definition is not there. noun: a title used before a surname or full name to address or refer to a man without a higher or honorific or professional title: Mr. Robert Smith. MR A D HODGKINSON conforms to this usage. Consider: Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Mr. Hyde was no gentleman.

Foulger, if you're an old-enough fart, you may recall a popular song of the 'Sixties named, "Along the Shore." It was by a clarinetist who called himself "_Mister_ Acker Bilk." People were more concerned as to whether his name was really "Acker Bilk" (it was) than whether he styled himself "Mister." If nobody sweated "Mister" then, why sweat it now?

The point is that the title Mister is conferred upon another. It is not a title which one can assume for oneself. Even Mr Hyde (referred to by another contributor) did not call himself Mr Hyde, just Hyde. Thats the whole point.

Hi, I'm the application author. The MacUpdate listing for my app was created automatically when Apple approved the latest version - don't know why it happened now and never before, but I'm not complaining! :-) Apple have a peculiar form for names which relates to your payment details; that's why my name has ended up capitalised and includes "MR". As far as I know though, in modern day UK, "mister" is a perfectly acceptable and normal form of address that confers no special privilege, distinct from other titles such as "doctor". I'm not sure how to link the Mac Update developer account I just created to this automatically created listing, but if I figure it out, that should clear up the capitalised name.
