If you want to make a Windows desktop icon from any picture, use Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires a minute to create a great-looking icon of any image file. Just select the resolution and transparency!
Have you tried personalizing a folder on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a directory icon requires that you specify an image in a valid Windows icon type. You are able to download free windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what if you have a specific image in account and just want to make a desktop icon from your own image?
If you want to create a Windows desktop icon out of any picture, you need a tool to do the icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not have any built-in icon converter to create Windows icons out of pictures. How can you make a Windows icon in this situation? Get a third-party tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A pro-grade software to create and transform icons? They must need a skillful designer to work with, right? No! Any user can make an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you require to make your personal icon files is a picture you choose and an icon transforming application.
It only takes seconds to create a perfect icon from any graphic file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, simply start Any to Icon and load files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and converts them into ICO files. Specify options for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Square the picture with a crop tool, and you have a native Windows icon which can be assigned to any directory! The new icon already contains all the resolutions that are necessary to view your folder correctly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you specify. Compact view, list view or big view will appear equally nice, with cool transparency effects and sleek borders.
