Did you ever try personalizing a directory on your desktop using an icon? Selecting a directory icon requires that you select a picture in a correct Windows icon format. You can download many windows desktop icons from the Internet, but what when you have a certain image in account and just want to make a desktop icon from that image?
If you need to make a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you need an application to perform icon conversion. It so happens that Windows does not have any built-in icon software to create Windows icons from image files. How can you create a Windows icon then? Get a side tool like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A professional application to make and convert icons? They should need an experienced designer to work with, yes? Wrong! Anyone can make an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you require to make your personal icons is an image you like and an icon transforming tool.
It only takes a minute to create a fine-looking icon out of 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 reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and transforms them into ICO format. Define properties for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the picture with a cut tool, and you have an original Windows icon which can be assigned to any folder! Your new icon initially has all the resolutions that are required to view your directory correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you select. Compact view, list view or large view will appear equally pleasant, with cool transparency effects and smooth edges.
