    I know there's a way to change broader icons like system stuff and the general new folder icon, but is there a way to change each specific folder to a different picture?

    Ex. I have a folder called pictures and another called music on my desktop. Is there any way to change those icons individually to have a camera for one folder icon and headphones for another?

    I'm familiar with candybar, lite icon, and icustomize but I don't see that option. Thanks.

    Select the folder
    Right click (control click) and select "get info"
    Or do a command-I

    Select the icon at the top left corner
    Copy and paste there

    It's just an (incredibly annoying) image. Click the insert image button.
