Everything you need to make your personal icon files is an image you like and an icon conversion tool.
It only takes seconds to create a great-looking icon from any picture file. To transform a picture to a Windows icon, just start Any to Icon and load files to the program. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and converts them to ICO files. Define options for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the image with a crop tool, and you've got an original Windows icon that can be assigned to any directory! Your new icon initially contains all the resolutions that are required to view your folder properly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you select. Small view, list view or big view will look equally pleasant, with cool transparency options and sleek borders.
