    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this question.

    I put a lot of photos on my Mac. Every time I put photos on, I start a new folder, then eventually transfer them to a flash drive.

    When I add a folder, I get the little blue folder on my desktop with the words untitled folder underneath. I change the name to whatever my photos are about...birthday, vacation, etc.

    Is there a way to change the little blue folder into one of the pictures from that particular file? I think that would look a lot cooler than a bunch of blue folders on my desktop.

    Open the image you'd like to use in Preview, then select the area you'd like to use and press Command+C. If you want to use the whole image, just press Command+A then Command+C

    Click the blue folder, then press Command+I

    Click the icon of the blue folder in the window that appears, it's in the top left, one-time so that it's highlighted.

    Press Command+V

    Copy the image you want to use for that folder. Highlight the folder and press Command + i, this will bring up an info pane for that folder. In the info pane, click on the folder icon then paste with Control + v. Your folder icon will now be the image you selected.

    Edit: Yay, you beat me to it.
