With my latest free kit, I received a number of emails and comments asking me how I replaced the folder images with the image of my kit preview. On PCs, the image named “folder” would show up as a preview on the folder… but Macs don’t do that. I was introduced to this nifty little app – Img2icns (it’s free!) – that allows you to replace your folder images with any image you want! It is super helpful for organizing and remembering what is on your hard drive.
Here are a bunch of boring folders… they’ll be much prettier in a few moments! Install the app and then open it up.
Navigate to the image you want to use for the folder’s icon. Then drag and drop that image into the Img2icns box.
It will look like this once you drop it in:
Now, navigate to the folder you want to replace with the image, then drag and drop the folder’s icon into the Img2icns box. The folder will magically change! Wow! hehe
See? So much better! Now I can see all my pretty digi scrap kits before I even open up the folders.
I hope that is a helpful little tip for you Mac users out there!Pin It
