    Changing picture into folder icon
    Hi guys/girls,

    Do you know how to change your folder on a mac. All my music is on my mac, and I will like to use the albumcovers as folder image.

    I come so far, that I can see a papir with Mpeg written inside, instead of the normal blue folder icon...but I can't see the picture.

    Sorry the bad english(denmark)

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    I would suggest using iTunes to browse your music instead of using Finder. All sorts of Album cover views there.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    While I'm all for the occasional custom folder icon, I agree with Bob -- that sounds like utterly pointless busy-work that iTunes makes moot.
