Info updated on:

Tinted Folders Lit‪e‬ is a simple application designed to help you enhance the appearance of your folders. Therefore, you can use this utility to make your folders more colorful and attractive.
The application is very easy to use. All you need to do is drag and drop into the main window the folder you wish to process; choose the template style out of two available profiles; select a favorite color; adjust the intensity for red, green, and blue within the selected color; customize the radiance level, and apply the settings to the loaded folders. Unfortunately, the tool doesn't provide a color palette with multiple shades of the same color. It comes with only twelve color templates, which, however, you can manually adjust in terms of intensity. Furthermore, the tool lacks the option to add text, emoji, or a tiny picture over the background color. Such a feature would give a personal touch to the representation of your folders.

In short, Tinted Folders Lit‪e offers a simple solution to change the color of your folders according to your liking. At reopening, the tool remembers your last color adjustments so you can apply them to new folders. However, it would be more convenient to have the ability of saving changes as templates, but unfortunately the app misses such a feature.

I'm really enjoying this app. I've been waiting for this to be doable on Apple OS for decades. I guess no one cares to organize at the same level as "we" (who love this app) do, haha. I did apply a color to a "document" (one of the options) and that aspect fails miserably, it gave me a white file with barely a tint of color. Now I want to revert back to my original document icon and I can't find a way to do it. Other than that, I'm LOVING it, thank you!
