Just bought your nice program looking for custom folder icons on my mac, but I can't do so. Seems like folder template is a bit different from what is on mac and colors vary. What am I doing wrong or is it made by purpose like licensing? If so, is it possible to manually set image for folder background in the app on my system, so the result would be the same as default folder? Attaching GenericFolderIcon.icns that are come with Mac OS Sierra and newly created empty folder.icns with Image2Icon app. And also attaching screenshot with 3 folders where middle one is created in the app.

    Hi Evgeny,

    I'm not on a calibrated monitor but it seems folder.icns and GenericFolderIcon.icns are very similar. The three folder screenshot shows the system watermarked icons which are darker than regular folders.

    Hmm, can I make same watermarked icons too? Also here is a screenshot of 2 icons from app and 2 default folder icons. Still different in my opinion...

    it's possible something changed with the 10.12.3, I'll check as soon as possible.

    It seems something changed in the folder after the 10.12.3 or they have remove the gamma correction.

    We'll do some tests and change the folder output in the next release.
