Transforming Images into Icons

When you have to create a Windows desktop icon of any picture, select Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires a minute to make a perfect icon of any image file. Simply set the size and transparency!

Did you ever try customizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Selecting a directory icon needs that you select a picture in a correct Windows icon type. You can download many windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what if you have a certain picture 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 picture, you need an application to do the icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not have any built-in icon software to make Windows icons out of pictures. How can you get a Windows icon then? Get a side application such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Wait a second! A professional software to create and convert icons? They must require an experienced designer to operate, yes? Wrong! Anyone is able to make an original Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you need to create your personal icons is a picture you choose and an icon transforming application.

It only takes a minute to create a fine-looking icon from any picture 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 to ICO files. Specify options for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the picture with a cut instrument, and you have an original Windows icon that can be assigned to any directory! Your new icon already has all sizes that are necessary to place your folder properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view resolution you determine. Compact view, list view or large view will look equally great, with cool transparency effects and sleek borders.

Require advanced options such as shadows or opacity? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! These Windows icon editors allow you to edit icons in the exe-files, craft and edit Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
