Add Folder Icons 4+

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.

What’s New

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

Excellent App

It's a quick, lightweight, easy to use app that is still supported in 2018! (I originally downloaded it in 2011).

I love that you can customise your own presets and tell the program the common names of files to be used as the cover art (under Preferences > Advanced).

It's excellent overall!

Very nice app

This is a neat little app that makes my folders look much more interesting. It also is useful to find a particular music folder or set of photos at a glance.

Nice add on

Adds in what Apple probably should have put in there in the first place. Great little utility.

George Garside - thanks for updating your review.
