Plenty of apps can do folder customizing on your Mac, and many make adding text and icons to a folder mere child’s play. But none of them do the deed right from the Mac’s Finder as a Service. This is the easy way to customize and personalize a folder.
Messing With Uniformity
There’s little question that Apple likes artistic uniformity. That explains why most folders in OS X look exactly the same, save a few with embedded icons (Apps, Utilities, Documents, Downloads, etc.).
If you’d like to dress up the folders in your Mac’s Finder then take a look at iconXprit. Yeah, that’s the name. I don’t know why, either.
What a few dollars gets you is an easier way to enhance folders through the Mac’s Finder Services.
Think of what you’d like to do to Finder folders. Drop in an icon image. Add some text. Drop in a few effects to define a group of folders. Or, just change the color.
That’s what iconXprit does, and as a Mac OS X Service, it does it from the context menu in the Finder.
Take a look at what pops up.
Think of iconXprit as a mini Photoshop Lite for Folders (or, maybe slightly less than that).
Add color wherever you prefer. Drop in images, each of which can be resized, moved, transformed with effects. Text, too.
Edits can be saved and reused on other folder as a template favorite. iconXpirt may have an odd name but it’s a useful way to add a little more color to folders in the Finder. You know, all that customization and personalization that Apple doesn’t want Mac users to engage in without permission.
