Have you tried personalizing a folder on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a folder icon needs that you specify a picture in a valid Windows icon type. You are able to download many windows desktop icons from the Internet, but what if you have a certain image in account and just want to make a desktop icon out of that picture?
If you want to make a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you need an application to perform icon transformation. It so happens that Windows does not contain any built-in icon converter to make Windows icons out of graphic files. How can you get a Windows icon in this situation? Use a side tool like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A professional application to make and transform icons? They must require a skillful designer to work with, right? No! Anyone is able to make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you need to create your own icons is an image you like and an icon transforming tool.
It only requires seconds to make a fine-looking icon out of any graphic file. To transform a picture to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and converts them to ICO files. Define options for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the image with a crop instrument, and you have a native Windows icon which can be assigned to any folder! The new icon already contains all the resolutions that are required to view your directory correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you select. Small view, list view or large view will look equally nice, with neat transparency effects and smooth edges.
