Converting Graphics into Icons

If you have to make a Windows desktop icon from any image, choose Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires a minute to create a perfect icon from any image file. Just select the resolution and transparency!

Have you tried customizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Selecting a directory icon needs that you select an image in a valid Windows icon format. You are able to download free windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what when you have a specific picture in account and simply want to create a desktop icon out of that image?

If you need to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you require a tool to perform icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not contain any default converter to create Windows icons from graphic files. How would you get a Windows icon then? Get a third-party tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Weird! A pro-grade application to create and transform icons? They must need an experienced designer to operate, right? Wrong! Any user can make an original Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you need to create your personal icons is an image you like and an icon transforming tool.

It only takes seconds to make a great-looking icon out of any picture file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and load files to the program. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and transforms them to ICO files. Specify properties for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the picture with a cut instrument, and you've got a native Windows icon which you can assign to any folder! The new icon initially contains all the resolutions that are required to place your folder properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view resolution you select. Compact view, list view or big view will appear equally nice, with cool opacity effects and sleek borders.

Want complicated options such as shadows or opacity? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! These Windows icon editors allow you to alter icons inside exe-files, create and edit Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
