PSD Folder Template by paulodelvalle PSD Folder Template by paulodelvalle
As you guys asked, a Photoshop template file that allows you to create your own folder icons for TV series, movies, music etc.

VIDEO TUTORIAL: [link]

After you're done creating your folder, save it as a PNG file.

If you use Windows, you'll have to convert the PNG to an ICO file (just google "PNG to ICO converter" and you'll find something useful). That's it, it's done.

For Mac is a little bit different, you'll have to convert the file twice to get it done.

1) You'll have to convert it from PNG to ICNS (you might find something on Google to convert it). You must save the ICNS file in all available sizes (from 16x16 to 512x512). You don't have to save one at a time, because the ICNS file includes all of them in one single file. I use an Apple software called "Icon Composer" that does that automatically, so I don't know how other softwares do that.

2) Then you have to convert it from ICNS to RSRC (I recommend a free software called "Icns2Rsrc").

That's it, now you replace the icons, as taught in the tutorials available inside each icon pack.

Creating your folders (Quick Tutorial):

First, open Photoshop. Open the image you wanna use and drag it to the folder file. In the "Layers" window, drag the image to the "Template" folder. Your image must be the first thing on the folder, above the "Front". Adjust your image position (how you'd like it on your folder). Now select the "Front" layer and press "W" on your keyboard. Click outside the front image (the gray one). The outside will be selected. Now select your TV Series image and press "Delete". Now your image should be shaped like the folder. With the image layer selected, apply the Inner Shadow effect, then adjust it the way you like it.

I hope y'all get it right. Any doubts, feel free to ask.

See ya! Hope you enjoy it.

Hi! Does anyone know how to manage to do it using GIMP? I can't make the image the same size than the folder no matter how much I try. I'd really appreciate it if someone could tell me how you did it. Thanks!!!

I can't get the layers of the folder to open. I'm not sure why, I'm using Photoshop Elements 8. If you could offer any help it would be appreciated, thanks.

paulodelvalle Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2013
I believe there are no layers on Photoshop Elements. It's basically a software to edit photos. You'd have to download the original version of Photoshop. You can download the trial version of the Photoshop CS6 for free and use it for 30 days!

I'm sorry, I don't have a computer with Windows on it. Photoshop is pretty much the same in both systems, only the shortcuts change. Since I dind't use any shortcut, it should be basically the same thing. What kind of problems are you facing?

Thanks.

You should use the tool "Magic Wand" (or press "W" on your keyboard). Choose this tool, select the "Front" layer, with the Magic Wand click on the outside of the folders and it should be selected. Then you choose the layer of your TV series image and just press delete/backspace on your keyboard. The image should have the same shape as the folder. Try watching the video tutorial one more time after reading this, maybe you'll understand!

Good luck!

"Right click" on the layer and click on "rasterize layer". It won't be a Smart Object anymore and you'll be able to delete the outside.

How would this work in GIMP?
Reply
:iconpaulodelvalle:
paulodelvalle Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012
I'm not really sure, but since it's an alternative to Photoshop, it might do the same thing. I mean, those are just simple functions that this kind of software should have.

I've never used GIMP, so I can't say for sure.

Hello there! I'm pretty sure it's the same thing. I haven't used any tools that are not available in previous versions of the Photoshop. Give it a try and if you have any questions, you can ask me.

Ok?

Thanks!
