Add an image to folder icons.

Overview

Plaster is an application used to plaster images on folder icons. There are two modes of operation.

The first method is to drag any image file from the Finder to the plaster image in the application's window. You can also drag any file which is not an image file but you think may contain a valid image. This includes files such as MP3 and M4A files. You can also drag an image directly from your browser. You can also drag any application to use its icon. If you want to copy an icon already on a folder, hold down the Shift key and drag over the folder. Once you have an image displayed in the application's window, drag over the folder you want to plaster. That's all you have to do to plaster an icon onto a folder.

The second method is to drag over a folder containing one or more image files. An image will be chosen at random from the image files in the folder and will be displayed. If you like the image chosen, hit the button with the Plaster icon. Alternately, if more images are available, you can hit the Try Again button and another image will be chosen. If you decide you do not want to plaster an icon on the folder, you can hit the Cancel button. This mode will also display a Remove button. Hitting Remove will remove the current icon on the folder, if any.

What's new in Plaster

Version 2.0:
  • No longer supports OS versions earlier than 10.9
  • Plaster has passed through Apple's notarization servers
  • The Round Corners advanced option has been replaced by an option called Image Rounding. You can specify the percentage to be applied when setting the x and y radiuses or pick a canned setting from a control. At a percentage of 50, icons can be rounded
  • The Transparent border and Visible border settings may be specified as pixel (as opposed to percentage) values by entering them as negative numbers
  • Images can be converted to grayscale
  • Images can be applied on top of a standard Mac folder icon
  • When an image is initially being chosen from a folder's contents, a folder.jpg file will always be chosen first
  • You can now drag images out of Plaster to other applications and optionally have them auto-scaled down
  • You can now copy images from Plaster and paste files and images into it

Can't put pics on folders with Mojave via 'Get Info' now, so needed another way. This is it! Simple and quick. One star down as the image cropping is a bit lumpy and limited. Could always crop the image first of course but that takes extra time.

My experiences: Will not plaster a folder if that folder is empty. Put something in it, and it becomes plastered. Will not plaster a folder if there is another FOLDER within it. Remove that interior folder and the main folder will plaster. You can then return the moved folder to its original place. Inconvenient, but that's all. These minor things don't bother me, and they are probably fixable in a future update. Thanks to the developer for a useful way to make a boring Finder a bit more colorful. BTW: All of my trials were done using Path Finder, not Finder. Don't know if that makes a difference or not. -MTC

Has a few quirks, but they are easily overcome (See Troubleshooting). Useful and fun. Especially glad it has the REMOVE function.
