Converting Images into Icons

If you have to create a Windows desktop icon of any image, use Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes a minute to make a perfect icon from any image file. Simply select the resolution and opacity!

Have you tried customizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a directory icon requires that you specify an image in a valid Windows icon format. You can download many windows desktop graphics from the Web, but what when you have a certain image in account and just want to make a desktop icon out of that image?

If you want to create a Windows desktop icon from any image, you require a tool 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 create a Windows icon then? Use a third-party tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Wait a second! A pro-grade software to make and transform icons? These should need a skillful designer to work with, right? Wrong! Anyone is able to create a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vista icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to create your own icon files is an image you like and an icon conversion tool.

It only requires seconds to make a fine-looking icon out of any graphic file. To convert a picture to a Windows icon, simply launch Any to Icon and load files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them to ICO files. Specify options for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the picture with a cut instrument, and you have an original Windows icon that you can assign to any folder! The new icon already has all the resolutions that are necessary to view your folder properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you determine. Compact view, list view or big view will look equally pleasant, with cool opacity options and smooth edges.

Need complicated options such as shades or opacity? Try IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! These Windows icon makers allow you to alter icons in the exe-files, make and modify Windows XP icons and Windows Vista icons.
