Forum Question: How To Change Multiple Folder Icons Using Automator

Hi! Iam using a mid 2011 iMac 27″running OS X Lion. Iam interested in applying one icon to a great number of folders.
I know how to do this for a single folder, but not multiple. I want to see how this is done using automator.

    I can’t think of a way to use Automator to do that. But it would be the wrong too for it anyway.
    You can just select them all and change the icon.
    Bring up the Info inspector in the Finder — this is different than the Info window in that it is persistent and can change according to what you select.
    Select the folders and use Command+Option+I to bring up the inspector. Then change the icon by selecting the icon in the inspector and pasting the graphic into it.
