Idea by Salvo Nicolosi:
I resume the typical situation I have. I've got a BIG folder called "albums" in which there are 100's of subfolders, each one containing an album (mp3).
For each of them I've got one file inside called folder.jpg with the album cover: in XP this is enough to get the thumbnail.
But the folder preview is a jpg and does not appear when you swich to "details", "icons" or "titles" view... right?
So the idea is to to generate a "custom icon" for each folder FROM folder.jpg.
