Did you ever try customizing a directory on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a folder icon requires 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 picture in mind and simply want to create a desktop icon from your own picture?
If you need to make a Windows desktop icon from any image, you need an application to perform icon conversion. It so happens that Windows does not contain any built-in icon software to create Windows icons out of image files. How can you get a Windows icon then? Get a side application like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A professional application to make and convert icons? These must require a skillful designer to work with, right? Wrong! Anyone can make an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you need to create your personal icon files is a picture you like and an icon transforming tool.
It only takes a minute to make a perfect icon out of any image file. To transform a picture to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and add files to the program. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and converts them to ICO files. Select options for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the picture with a crop tool, and you've got an original Windows icon which you can assign to any folder! Your new icon initially contains all the resolutions that are necessary to view your directory properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you select. Small view, list view or large view will look equally pleasant, with cool opacity options and smooth borders.
