Have you tried customizing a directory on your desktop with an icon? Choosing a directory icon needs that you select an image in a valid Windows icon format. You can download free windows desktop graphics from the Web, but what if you have a certain picture in account and just want to create a desktop icon from that image?
If you need to make a Windows desktop icon out of any picture, you need a tool to do the icon transformation. It appears that Windows does not have any built-in icon software to make Windows icons from image files. How can you create a Windows icon then? Get a third-party tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A professional application to create and transform icons? They should need a skillful designer to work with, yes? No! Any user is able to create an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you need to create your personal icon files is an image you like and an icon transforming 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 add files to the program. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them into ICO files. Define options for your icon, such as the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the picture with a crop instrument, and you have an original Windows icon which you can assign to any directory! The new icon already has all sizes that are required to place your directory correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you specify. Compact view, list view or big view will look equally pleasant, with neat transparency options and sleek borders.
