View Full Version : Is it just me, or does the 16x16 folder icon suck?

after over a year of using osx, the little 16x16 generic folder icon has finally gotten on my nerves. it's kind of ugly compared to all of the other sizes of the icon and looks like it was just scaled rather than tweaked to look it's best. unfortunately, i have absolutely no artistic ability and all articles about aqua icon creation just say "make your icons look shiny" without any explanation, otherwise, i would make my own. it really became obvious when i used the 16x16 folder as the icon for my bookmark toolbar folders in chimera. a big row of ugly little folders sure looks unprofessional. there are still plenty of next icons lingering around in system apps, but you would think that apple would have taken care of the generic folder.

just a little rant, i wanted to know if i'm the only one who finds the tiny icon irksome (i probably am).
