Hello Keith, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition, this will allow you to change the folder picture that is displayed inside the folder icon itself. It's the same as in Vista.

third addition: make a copy of the pic you want to use as a folder image, move it into the folder, rename the pic "folder" without quotes, right click on it, choose hidden, apply, ok. (you don't need to hide it if you don't want to).
There you go, now you have new folder image.
