Folder images? (1 Viewer)

Wondering if anyone can help me with a query I have please....

I have set up the pictures function in MP to display a number of family photos. These are all split into in separate folders (each folder being a different family event)

Anyway, everything is working fine and the folders are all showing. However, I would like to change the folder icon / picture that is displayed. Currently it is just showing a little red disc drive (running StreamedP skin) for each folder.

I would like to have a photo within each folder as the folder jpg. Reading another thread on here someone suggested that having a hidden jpg inside each folder with the folder name would do the trick but this doesnt work for me. I also tried it without being a hidden file and still no joy.

Would like to use the icons or big icons default folder view, so I assume that it should be possible?

Can anyone tell me what I need to do?

Many thanks in advance.
