When you want to make a Windows desktop icon from any picture, use Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires seconds to make a fine-looking icon from any graphic file. Simply set the size and transparency!
Did you ever try customizing a directory on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a folder icon needs that you select an image in a correct Windows icon type. You are able to download free windows desktop graphics from the Web, but what when you have a certain image in account and just want to create a desktop icon out of your own image?
If you need to make a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you require an application to do the icon transformation. It so happens that Windows does not have any built-in icon converter to make Windows icons from graphic files. How can you make a Windows icon in this situation? Get a side tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A pro-grade software to make and convert icons? They should require an experienced designer to work with, yes? No! Any user is able to create a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to create your own icon files is an image you choose and an icon transforming application.
It only takes a minute to make a perfect icon out of any image file. To convert an image to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and converts them to ICO format. Define properties for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the image with a crop instrument, and you've got a native Windows icon that you can assign to any directory! Your new icon already contains all the resolutions that are required to place your directory properly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you specify. Small view, list view or large view will appear equally pleasant, with cool opacity effects and smooth borders.
Require advanced options such as shades or opacity? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! Those Windows icon makers enable you to modify icons in the exe-files, make and modify Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
