Add Folder Icons

By Pond's Hipposoft

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Ordinary folders in the Mac OS X Finder 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 things 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.

• When building icons, very large images are skipped to avoid using too
   much memory. This is set at 64MB in version 2.1.0. In a future update,
   you'll be able to configure this to suit your computer and images.

What's New in Version 2.1.0

• Now supports sandboxing in Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion" and 10.8 "Mountain

• New introduction screen makes it easier to understand and use the
   application straight away.

• Fixed icon generator stalls on Lion for large collections of folders.

• Fixed failure to honour the filename and label related settings in the
   "Advanced" section of the Preferences.
