It only takes a minute to make a perfect icon out of any image file. To convert a picture to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them to ICO format. Define options for your icon, such as the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the image with a cut instrument, and you've got a native Windows icon which can be assigned to any directory! The new icon initially has all sizes that are necessary to view your folder properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view resolution you determine.
