Is there an icon set with an "opening" folder?

    The default folder icons in OS X "open" when you drag an item into them.

    I don't care for the look of most of the default OS X icons, so I've modified them using CandyBar and a fairly old set of icons (see attached screenshot) I've been using since the Jaguar days. But this means missing out on that tiny bit of animation, which is actually quite useful when you want to know if the item being dragged has registered with the folder you're dragging it into.

    So does anyone know of an icon set with a folder that "opens" when you're dragging an item into it? Or is this only possible with the OS X default icons?

    No, it's not just Apple default icons that can be made with open/drop animations – there are quite a few third party sets that feature them too. A few that I know of are Agua, ClearBlack and Matrix Rebooted from The Iconfactory, and Minium from RAD-E8.

    Thanks for those suggestions. I'd never seen Clear Black before, and I really like it. And the forthcoming Minium sets (Calabi, for example) look really cool too.
