Custom Treehouse Projects Folder

I have on my Mac a folder where I put all my stuff related to Treehouse. This may seem odd that I'm posting it here, but it isn't dumb, because it has a custom icon:

Treehouse Folder

It's pretty cool. It looks great in the Dock as well:

If you want to use this folder, you can download it using the links below (don't worry, it's empty). Enjoy!

@Paul - How did you make the folder? I had no idea you could make customize folders like that.

@brandon Basically you re-create the default OS X folder icon in Photoshop (here is a good guide for doing that: http://www.tutorial9.net/tutorials/photoshop-tutorials/photoshop-tutorial-design-the-mac-os-x-leopard-folder/), and then apply it to an existing folder. To apply the image you have created, export it as an icns file. Then, create the folder you want to apply it to. After you have done that, click on the folder once, and press (Command + I). On the top-left of the Get Info window, click once on the folder's icon to highlight it. Go back to your icon and copy it by pressing (Command + C). Go back to the Get Info window, and paste in your new icon by pressing (Command +V). Open Terminal and run "killall Finder" (without the quotes) to see the changes without needing to restart.

So that's how you do it. Pretty simple, although it does take a little time.

@Ben Thanks! (and nice hand)

@Ben Ok, that's just really cool ;)

I should have posted this emoji cheat sheet in my last one. (I thought it was linked on the page here, actually.) :flushed:

@Ben - Add a link the emoji cheat sheet, next to the link to the markdown cheat sheet would be a good idea.

Is this icon still available? I'm definitely interested in getting one of these on my own computer!

Sorry about that! I'll upload it again today for you.
