I have several thousands of photographs on an external hard drive. Obviously, they are located in folders, most of which are just named by the date photographed. With Windows the folder has a photograph displayed on it. So certain sets of photos are easy to find. It seems that with Mac, you have to open the folder to see what is in it .ie there is no clue on the folder surface that suggests what group of photos are inside. Does Mac truly not have that capability or am I missing something?

I normally don't even post, but what kind of an answer is that? Help the man out if you know the answer!

Actually, I've been a PC guy for several years and just converted to Mac.
Although most of Mac is very intuitive, there are somethings that are not.
I found the answer to my question by clicking "help" and typing in "custom
icon." It really is quite easy. Sorry Jon if my post annoyed you.

So I dont know if this is what your asking but what I do is apple+f on the desktop to open the finder and click on the drop down that says kind and change it to file extension and search for jpg, raw whatever your files are once its finished I switch to the coverflow view and then you can see a preview of all you files. You can right click or ctrl click and select open folder containing if you want to see where a particular file is stored.

If your loading into Iphoto they should be in there, also go in your HD and look under library, all downloaded phoy=to's shpuld be in there, but you'll have to open them on at a time.

If ya find a better answer let me know.

I am a big Mac fan, but I can understand your problem here and I am not sure if there is an immediately obvious solution. Given a little time you could probably find an application though for making custom folder icons or possibly even an online solution which achieves the same result. As an aside, I just found this through a Google search which looks semi useful http://www.mactips.org/archives/2007...in-quick-look/

Personally I think you are doing this the wrong way though. Looking forward yo should really be creating a solid set up for your Digital Asset Management and I recommend you read a book by Peter Krogh on that subject. http://tinyurl.com/kql5lm

In the past my system for filing images was a complete mess. I was always able to find something eventually but there was no rhyme or reason to my system. By following that book and adopting the system I can now find any image on my network of drives in just a few seconds and the system will work going forward as well. It does take a while to put right if you have a large existing archive but it's worth it if you are serious about your photography.
