In case anyone else is as OCD as I am, here’s a set of GF MacOS folder icons. I use two computers with GF (one for design, one older hand me down for burn management so that I don’t accidentally close the burn window or have a system crash caused by web or productivity use), and as such have a network shared folder for designs, as well as one for clutter and pre-print design work. Realized some
folks out there might be able to make use of the files for something.
most people capable of running a GF probably know that in most modern MacOS releases you right click and Get Info on an icon to find where to change it. But at some point along the line when they upgraded the icon pixel count it became unclear how to get a png to work since it doesn’t seem to drag and drop properly anymore. I get best results opening the png in Preview and then CMD + A to select all, then copy it to get all 512x512 pixels. Go back to your Get Info query window and click on the existing icon to highlight, then CMD + V paste and Bob should be your uncle. Note that MacOs doesn’t seem to like changing the icon more than once, so if you try this and it fails after your first change, easier to create a new folder and modify it, then swap out contents and rename. Network shared folders tend to fight re-imaging because the system doesn’t seem to know how to have the icon image go between computers or resolve conflicts, so it just ignores you and uses the default, but there are workarounds.
