Converting Images into Icons

If you want to create a Windows desktop icon of any image, choose Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes seconds to craft a perfect icon of any image file. Simply select the resolution and transparency!

Have you tried personalizing a directory on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a folder icon requires that you select a picture in a valid Windows icon format. You are able to download free windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what when you have a specific image in account and just want to make a desktop icon out of that image?

If you want to create a Windows desktop icon out of any picture, you need a tool to perform icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not contain any built-in icon software to create Windows icons from pictures. How can you make a Windows icon then? Get a side application like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Weird! A pro-grade application to create and transform icons? They should need a skillful designer to work with, right? Wrong! Any user can make an original Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to make your personal icons is an image you choose and an icon conversion tool.

It only takes seconds to create a perfect icon from any graphic file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and add files to the program. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and converts them to ICO files. Specify properties for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the picture with a cut tool, and you have a native Windows icon which can be assigned to any folder! The new icon already contains all sizes that are required to view your folder correctly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you select. Small view, list view or large view will look equally pleasant, with cool transparency options and smooth borders.

Require advanced features such as shadows or translucency? Try IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! Those Windows icon editors allow you to alter icons inside exe-files, craft and modify Windows XP icons and Windows Vista icons.
