little geeky pleasures- images instead of icons!

I often have way too many things cluttering up my laptop screen- because  of wanting to have everything at my fingertips…. but!  It was getting awfully crowded around here, so I remembered that there’s a way to make the folders more individualized, instead of so many redundant, generic blue rectangles. 

Imageso, now all my various projects and important tasks are more attractive and easier to see at a glance.

I love making my MacBook Pro more my very own!

to do yourself:    open an image in preview, select all, then copy.

Then highlight the file you want to “decorate”.  In “file” menu, get info, highlight the small icon near the top, and paste your image – easy peasy.

I've been a painter for about 30 years. I also draw and make monotypes, linocuts and other prints. I like tangled stuff.
