Converting Graphics into Icons

When you want to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, select Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires seconds to create a great-looking icon of any image file. Just select the resolution and opacity!

Did you ever try customizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Selecting a folder icon requires that you specify an image in a valid Windows icon type. You can download many windows desktop icons from the Internet, but what when you have a certain picture in account and just want to create a desktop icon out of your own image?

If you want to create a Windows desktop icon out of any picture, you require an application to do the icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not contain any built-in icon converter to make Windows icons from image files. How would you get a Windows icon then? Use a side tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Wait a second! A professional software to make and convert icons? They should require a skillful designer to work with, yes? No! Anyone is able to create an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you require to make your own icon files is a picture you choose and an icon transforming tool.

It only takes a minute to make a fine-looking icon out of any graphic file. To convert a picture to a Windows icon, just start Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and converts them to ICO format. Define properties for your icon, such as the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the picture with a crop instrument, and you have a native Windows icon which can be assigned to any folder! The new icon initially has all the resolutions that are necessary to view your folder correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you specify. Small view, list view or big view will look equally great, with cool opacity effects and sleek edges.

Want advanced features such as shades or opacity? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! These Windows icon editors allow you to modify icons in the exe-files, craft and modify Windows XP icons and Windows Vista icons.
