Folder icons are so samey aren't they? If you'd like to liven them up a little, Telling Folders is a really simple application that can help.
Telling Folders will add an image to the front of any folder in a short, two-step process. The single window interface first asks you to drag any file into it - whatever the image of that file is will be used on the folder - If you drag an application to it, it will use the icon image, for example. Once you've dragged in your image, simply drag in the folder you want to change, and the image will appear on it.
There's nothing else to Telling Folders - it has no options, and only changes folders. It makes a nice break from changing your whole icon set, and can make your folders more recognizable (especially if your desktop is littered with them!). Telling Folders would be much improved if you could change the color of the folder icons as well as add images.
Telling Folders is a very simple app, that works perfectly if you want to add images to your folder icons and nothing more.
