Get a side tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A pro-grade application to make and convert icons? They should require an experienced designer to operate, yes? No! Any user can create an original Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to create your personal icon files is an image you choose and an icon transforming application.
It only requires a minute to create a perfect icon from any graphic file. To convert a picture to a Windows icon, simply launch Any to Icon and add files to the program. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and converts them to ICO files. Specify properties for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the picture with a cut instrument, and you have a native Windows icon that you can assign to any directory! Your new icon already contains all sizes that are required to place your folder correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you specify. Compact view, list view or large view will appear equally great, with cool transparency options and smooth edges.
