    Open a Finder window, select the 'view' menu and then 'show view options'

    In the options box that pops up, select 'show icon preview'

    That should do it!

    Now go to my Band's website and download our free songs!

    i don't know what thats going to do. it doesn't seem to do anything. eg) i have a jpeg and i want it to be displayed at the top of an open folder window - as you would see with maybe an application's instal folder. one that is not grabable. does this make my question any clearer?

    Ahhhh, you want a background!

    Finder > View > Show View Options > Background (at the bottom) > Picture > Select and enjoy!

    ok - sorry about the discriptive inadequacies. now - if i were to send this file to a friend - this picture wouldn't go with the folder, would it? is there a way to include it in the folder? thanks again

    Haven't a clue, but I've seen it done. I have a feeling it's done using StuffIt, but I've never done it myself so I'm not sure.
