Did you ever try personalizing a directory on your desktop with an icon? Choosing a directory icon needs that you select an image in a valid Windows icon format. You can download many windows desktop icons from the Internet, but what when you have a specific picture in account and just want to make a desktop icon from that image?
If you need to create a Windows desktop icon out of any picture, you need a tool to perform icon transformation. It appears that Windows does not have any built-in icon converter to create Windows icons out of graphic files. How can you create a Windows icon in this situation? Get a side tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A professional software to make and transform icons? They must need an experienced designer to operate, yes? No! Any user can create an original Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you require to create your own icons is a picture you like and an icon transforming application.
It only requires seconds to create a fine-looking icon from any graphic file. To convert a picture to a Windows icon, simply start Any to Icon and add files to the program. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and converts them into ICO format. Specify properties for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the picture with a crop instrument, and you have a native Windows icon that you can assign to any folder! The new icon initially has all the resolutions that are required to view your directory properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you specify. Compact view, list view or large view will look equally nice, with neat opacity options and sleek borders.
