I’d like to see a little more versatility in the basic folder adjustment for adding a picture on top of a folder. For example currently you can place a photo on top of a folder. Folder is in the shape of a horizontal box. Half of all images are portraits right? Let’s make a mask that you can adjust the size of so the picture doesn’t incorporate the whole folder, but a portion of it so you can still see the edges of the folder being whatever color you want (which is possible with your program thank you). I know you can make the photo be horizontal or anywhere on the folder icon, but if there is a window (a mask) you can see the folder color and see a nice horizontal box that would show the photo you chose as opposed to having a vertical photo just sitting with a large area of the folder ont he right and left side. I don’t know if I made myself clear. I wish I could upload an image so you see what I used to do with my folders manually, but got bored and found your awesome program.

Simple and intuitive...


I had this app back when it’s logo was a gecko and hadn’t used it in awhile. Just downloaded this version and am pleased that it is still a classic example of a great “speciality” app! It’s purpose is focused, it’s simple and intuitive to use, and it gives you a predictable end product that is both pleasing to the eye and of practical value.
My only mild negative would be that I think it’s “free” version is underpriced for such a great product, but it’s template and export options are a bit pricey for the additional functionality. If the “unlocks” were more around $5 for everything, I would have probably purchased them. But make no mistake, this is a well designed piece of software that can make you feel like an artist. Using it makes me happy. I can’t say that about all my computer experiences!

Engraved folder icons don’t look like standard Mac engraved folder icons


This app is extremely easy to use. You can create an icon in 10 seconds! I really like how easy it is to change the horizontal and vertical position of the image in the icon. The quality of most of the icon templates (Folder, Document, Drive) is great. I really like that I can create a Windows ICO file as well; that means I can use this one app for multiple platforms!

However, the “Folder (Engraved)” template results in a softer/lighter engraved image than what I see with the standard Mac engraved folders (e.g., Documents, Pictures, Desktop). For my image, the engraved image was so light that it wasn’t even noticeable in Finder (using a small icon size, in List or Columns view); the folder looks just like the normal folder icon. It would be great to be able to choose how dark the engraving is.

It would also be great to have a DMG template (similar to the Drive template, but not quite).
