what to do with the “preview” image in your digital scrapbooking kit
apologies, I only know how to do this with a mac. please leave a comment if you know how to do it on a PC.
update! thanks to mary kay, here is how to do it on a PC: facebook link
first, here’s the quick version. then I will post illustrated steps.
1. open the folder.jpg or preview.jpg
2. select all, copy
3. select and control click, choose “get info” on the folder icon you want to change
4. click once on the little folder icon at the top of the get info window
okay here’s the illustrated version.
see how the folder is just a plain folder? there’s usually a preview image inside there. if not, you can use any of the jpg or png files. double click to open. on my mac, it opens in preview.
select all, and copy. this places a copy of the image into your clipboard.
go back to that original folder, click it once to highlight it. right-click or control-click to get the mini menu. choose “get info.”
this is what the get info window looks like.
click the little folder at the top. just one click to select it.
see, it’s highlighted when it’s selected
then paste. the contents of your clipboard replace the folder icon.
and now, see? your folder icon has changed!
