Hope this helps,
I think that's done the trick. Very nice tutorial.
Encountered a weird "bug" of sorts. I have a folder (call it A) containing several subfolders of pictures (call these B1, B2, etc.). I want the subfolders to have the picture template, but the folder of subfolders to have the general items template. If I set folder A to "pictures" template with "apply to subfolders" checked, obviously B1, B2, etc. show up as thumbnails within A (bad), but all the files in B1, B2, etc. show up as thumbnails as well (good). I thought I was being clever and saving time, and would now set A to the general items template without "apply to subfolders" checked. What actually happens, though, is the general item template IS applied to subfolders, and all the files in B1, B2, etc. are now displayed in the "details" view. For some reason, changes applied to a parent directory are applied to its subdirectories as well, despite me unchecking the box for that option. Oh well.:/
Also, selecting multiple folders at once and trying to apply a new template with the customize tab in properties does not work. If you use the "organize" menu to access properties, only the top folder in the list is altered. If you right click a random folder and click properties, only the folder you clicked on is affected.
