When you need to create a Windows desktop icon from any image, select Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires a minute to make a perfect icon of any image file. Simply set the resolution and opacity!
Did you ever try customizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a folder icon needs that you select an image in a valid Windows icon type. You are able to download many windows desktop icons from the Web, 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 make a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you need an application to perform icon conversion. It so happens that Windows does not contain any built-in icon software to create Windows icons out of pictures. How would you get a Windows icon in this situation? Use a side tool like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A professional application to make and convert icons? They should need an experienced designer to work with, yes? Wrong! Anyone is able to create an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you require to create your personal icon files is an image you choose and an icon transforming tool.
It only requires seconds to create a great-looking icon from any image file. To convert an image to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and load files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and converts them to ICO format. Specify options for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the image with a crop instrument, and you have a native Windows icon that can be assigned to any directory! The new icon initially has all the resolutions that are necessary to place your folder properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you select. Small view, list view or large view will look equally nice, with cool transparency effects and smooth edges.
