Transforming Images into Icons

When you want to make a Windows desktop icon from any image, use Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes seconds to craft a great-looking icon from any image file. Simply choose the resolution and opacity!

Did you ever try personalizing a directory on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a folder icon needs that you specify an image in a valid Windows icon type. You are able to download many windows desktop graphics from the Web, but what if you have a certain image in account and simply want to create a desktop icon from that image?

If you need to make a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you require an application to do the icon transformation. It so happens that Windows does not have any default software to create Windows icons out of image files. How would you get a Windows icon in this situation? Get a side application such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Wait a second! A pro-grade application to create and convert icons? They should need a skillful designer to operate, right? Wrong! Any user can make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you need to make your own icon files is an image you choose and an icon conversion application.

It only takes a minute to make a fine-looking icon out of any picture file. To convert an image to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and add files to the program. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and converts them to ICO format. Specify properties for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the image with a crop instrument, and you have an original Windows icon which you can assign to any directory! The new icon initially has all sizes that are necessary to view your folder properly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you specify. Compact view, list view or big view will appear equally nice, with cool opacity options and smooth borders.

Need advanced features such as shadows or translucency? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! These Windows icon editors allow you to alter icons in the exe-files, craft and edit Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
