Transforming Images into Icons

When you want to make a Windows desktop icon of any picture, select Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes a minute to make a fine-looking icon from any image file. Just set the size and transparency!

Have you tried customizing a directory on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a directory icon needs that you specify an image in a valid Windows icon type. You can download many windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what if you have a specific image in mind and just want to make a desktop icon out of that image?

If you want to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you need an application to perform icon transformation. It so happens that Windows does not contain any default software to create Windows icons out of pictures. How can you create a Windows icon then? Get a side application like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Weird! A professional application to create and transform icons? They must require an experienced designer to operate, yes? Wrong! Anyone can make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you need to make your personal icons is an image you choose and an icon conversion tool.

It only requires seconds to make a fine-looking icon from 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 supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them to ICO files. Select properties for your icon, such as the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Square the image with a cut tool, and you've got a native Windows icon that you can assign to any folder! The new icon already contains all the resolutions that are necessary to view your directory properly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you select. Small view, list view or large view will look equally great, with cool opacity effects and sleek borders.

Require complicated features such as shadows or opacity? Try IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! These Windows icon makers allow you to modify icons inside exe-files, create and edit Windows XP icons and Windows Vista icons.
