Converting Graphics into Icons

If you have to create a Windows desktop icon from any image, choose Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes seconds to make a great-looking icon from any graphic file. Just set the resolution and transparency!

Have you tried personalizing a directory on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a directory icon requires that you specify a picture in a valid Windows icon type. You can download free windows desktop icons from the Internet, but what if you have a specific picture in mind and just want to create a desktop icon from that image?

If you want to create a Windows desktop icon from any image, you require an application to perform icon transformation. It so happens that Windows does not contain any default software to create Windows icons from image files. How can you get a Windows icon then? Use a third-party tool like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Wait a second! A pro-grade software to make and transform icons? These should need an experienced designer to operate, right? No! Any user can create an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you need to create your own icons is an image you choose and an icon conversion application.

It only requires a minute to make a great-looking icon out of any picture file. To convert 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 transforms them into ICO files. Define properties for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the picture with a crop tool, and you've got an original Windows icon which can be assigned to any directory! Your new icon initially has all the resolutions that are required to place your folder properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you specify. Compact view, list view or large view will appear equally great, with cool opacity effects and sleek borders.

Require complicated options such as shades or opacity? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! Those Windows icon editors allow you to alter icons in the exe-files, craft and edit Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
