If you want to make a Windows desktop icon of any image, choose Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes a minute to craft a great-looking icon of any image file. Simply set the resolution and opacity!
Did you ever try personalizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a directory icon needs that you select a picture in a valid Windows icon format. You are able to download many windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what when you have a certain picture in account and simply want to create a desktop icon out of your own picture?
If you need to make a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you need a tool to do the icon transformation. It so happens that Windows does not contain any default converter to make Windows icons out of image files. How can you make a Windows icon in this situation? Use a third-party application such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A pro-grade application to make and transform icons? They should require a skillful designer to work with, yes? No! Anyone is able to make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vista icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to create your own icon files is an image you choose and an icon transforming application.
It only takes seconds to create a perfect icon from any graphic file. To convert an image to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and load files to the program. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them to ICO format. Define properties for your icon, such as the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the picture with a crop tool, and you have a native Windows icon that can be assigned to any folder! The new icon already has all sizes that are required to view your directory properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you determine. Small view, list view or big view will look equally great, with neat transparency options and smooth borders.
