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!

well, if you go to your gallery and hover over the folder icon, you'll see a little pencil thing (found on the top right corner of the gallery folder icon you hovered over). Then, you click on it and you will have the choice of renaming, deleting or moving the folder. However, you will also have the choice to "edit this widget". Click "edit this widget" and you will notice that all your folders have been replaced with a menu bar thing where you will select either to display your folder as thumbs or links, and if you would like to hide the labels. So to remove the gallery folder's title, just check the little box beside the "hide labels on custom icons" and hit save. the end (*v*)b

DeviantArt won't upload me any icon.
Each time they say the file is unable to upload.
But the pic is as large as demanded and it's saved as png.

when i try to draw on 152x152 on sai, its super blurry, like its zoomed a billion times. help?

Draw at a larger resolution with the image still being a square, and then resize it when you are done drawing.

If your image size is still too big for the maximum at 152 x 152, then try saving in PNG and not JPEG. PNG files tend to be smaller.

Hope that helps!
