    hi i want to use photo's for folder icons so i can quickly see what photo's are in a folder without having to open it first.

    you can. open the photo in Preview and copy it. then open the Get Info window while the folder is selected by either pressing cmd+I or choosing it from the File menu and then click on the folder in the top left to highlight it and paste the picture.

    unfortunately this wont work in Cover Flow view so use icon view and increase the icon size in Show View Options so you can see the picture.
