When you have to create a Windows desktop icon from any image, choose Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires seconds to craft a perfect icon of any image file. Just set the resolution and transparency!
Have you tried personalizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Selecting a folder icon requires that you select an image in a correct Windows icon format. You can download many windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what when you have a specific image in account and simply want to make a desktop icon from that image?
If you need to create a Windows desktop icon out of any picture, you require an application to do the icon conversion. It so happens that Windows does not contain any default software to make Windows icons out of image files. How can you create a Windows icon in this situation? Use a third-party tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A professional application to create and convert icons? These should require an experienced designer to work with, yes? No! Any user is able to create a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you require to create your own icons is an image you choose and an icon transforming tool.
It only takes a minute to make a great-looking icon from any picture file. To convert an image to a Windows icon, just start Any to Icon and load files to the program. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and converts them to ICO format. Select properties for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the image with a crop tool, and you've got a native Windows icon which you can assign to any directory! Your new icon initially contains all the resolutions that are required to view your directory correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you determine. Small view, list view or big view will appear equally pleasant, with neat opacity effects and smooth borders.
Want advanced features such as shades or opacity? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! These Windows icon editors enable you to modify icons inside exe-files, create and modify Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
