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!

How did you remove the gallery folder name? It always ends up with a big space in between and the name of the gallery folder shows. If I leave a blank on the gallery folder name, It changes to 'Devious Folder'.. ._. Please reply

I know about customizing gallery icons, but I've been wondering if it's possible to do so in a group gallery. I'm an admin at a deviant group and I've been redecorating it. I'd love to make custom folder icons for the group's gallery the way I did my own but it isn't allowing me, and there doesn't seem to be any help about it written online.
Thanks

Useful tutorial. c: I don't know if it's just me or something, but everytime when I try uploading a custom folder icon, it worked but the thing that bugs me is the folder name. For some whatever reason, I can't remove the folder's name, so if I want the folder icons to be displayed together, it never worked since the folder name is in the way. There's probably a solution I don't know about; I'm pretty dumb. e-e Please help?

Hi there. If you hover over your folder icon you should see a pencil icon pop up. Click on that and choose Edit this widget. Make sure the display is set as Thumbs and that the Hide labels on custom icons box is checked. This will remove the folder names for you.

If you need anything else just let me know. ^^
