Custom Gallery Folder Icon Tutorial by Gasara Custom Gallery Folder Icon Tutorial by Gasara
[07.05.13] Updated the tutorial for easier readability.

I've just made new icons for some of my gallery folders and thought this might be useful for some of you. Both premium and non-premium members can use this feature.

You can use the example icon shapes as bases if you like.

If you create your own custom folder icons feel free to link to your gallery here so other people can be inspired by your awesome!

A pink/red box with an exclamation point keeps popping up and say, "Unable to upload file to the file server." :/

I have a question. How do I display my folders in the center of my "featured" gallery tab instead of them being displayed on the left hand side? 

I've been trying to find a way to do this for a while. Does this have anything to do with the CSS?

Hi there, I was wondering if you knew how to remove the Folder name that shows up under the icon. Something has to be in that space or it will be named "Devious Folder", any help will be appreciated, thanks!

Click the button beside the folder like you want to rename it but choose edit widget instead. There is an option to check or uncheck a box that says hide labels on custom icons. Check the box. That will hide the folder names.

I'm sorry this reply is so late. Which button can't you find? The Folder Options one? It will be in the top-right corner of your gallery folder.

I attempted to do this using this free preset but I ended up with this.
I'm pretty sure I'm doing something wrong. How can I hide the folders' names so that the icons will touch?
