Did you ever try personalizing a directory on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a directory icon needs that you specify an image in a correct Windows icon type.

If you need to make a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you need a tool to perform icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not contain any default software to create Windows icons out of pictures. How can you make a Windows icon then? Get a side tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A professional application to make and convert icons? They should require a skillful designer to work with, yes? Wrong! Any user can make an original Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to make your own icon files is an image you like and an icon conversion tool.
It only requires a minute to create a perfect icon out of any image file. To convert a picture to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and load files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and transforms them to ICO format. Specify properties for your icon, such as the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the picture with a cut instrument, and you have an original Windows icon which you can assign to any folder! Your new icon initially contains all sizes that are required to place your folder properly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you determine. Small view, list view or large view will look equally great, with neat transparency options and smooth edges.
