When you want to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, use Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes a minute to craft a fine-looking icon from any image file. Simply choose the resolution and transparency!
Did you ever try personalizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Selecting a folder icon requires that you specify a picture in a correct Windows icon format. You are able to download many windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what when you have a specific image in mind and simply want to make a desktop icon from that picture?
If you need to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you require an application to do the icon conversion. It so happens that Windows does not have any default converter to create Windows icons out of pictures. How can you get a Windows icon in this situation? Use a third-party tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A pro-grade application to make and convert icons? These must need an experienced designer to work with, yes? No! Any user is able to make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you need to make your personal icons is an image you like and an icon conversion application.
It only requires a minute to create a great-looking icon out of any graphic file. To convert an image to a Windows icon, simply launch Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and transforms them to ICO files. Define options for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Square the image with a crop tool, and you have a native Windows icon which you can assign to any folder! Your new icon already has all the resolutions that are required to view your folder correctly in Windows Explorer no matter what view resolution you select. Small view, list view or big view will appear equally pleasant, with neat transparency options and smooth edges.
