I know that most of you have incredibly clever ways to organize your digital files, so that you can find things easily. Me, not so much. I have them in folders. Not the correct folders, but folders, none the less. When I found out that you could do this…it was a YUGE lightbulb moment!!

How would you like to be able to see a preview of what is in your folders? Look at my ScrapGirls product folders!! You can see the product marketing preview instead of the little blue folder icon.

This is how I did it on my Mac. It is not the same procedure for a Windows based machine but I did see that it can be done.

Choose a folder that you wish to edit, in Finder. Open the folder to find your product preview JPG.
