Add folder icons to ordinary folders.

What is Add Folder Icons for Mac

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

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.

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!

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.
