Did you ever try personalizing a directory on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a folder icon needs that you select an image in a correct Windows icon format. You are able to download many windows desktop icons from the Web, but what if you have a specific image in account and simply want to create a desktop icon from your own image?
If you want to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you require an application to do the icon conversion. It so happens that Windows does not contain any built-in icon software to make Windows icons from image files. How can you make a Windows icon in this situation? Get a third-party tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A pro-grade software to make and convert icons? They must need a skillful designer to operate, yes? Wrong! Any user is able to make an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you need to make your own icons is a picture you choose and an icon conversion application.
It only takes a minute to create a great-looking icon out of any graphic file. To convert an image to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and load files to the list. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and converts them into ICO format. Specify options for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Square the picture with a crop tool, and you have an original Windows icon which you can assign to any directory! The new icon initially contains all sizes that are necessary to view your folder correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you select. Small view, list view or big view will look equally pleasant, with cool transparency options and sleek edges.
