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.

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.
