Transforming Images into Icons

If you need to create a Windows desktop icon of any image, use Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires seconds to create a perfect icon of any graphic file. Simply select the resolution and transparency!

Did you ever try customizing a folder on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a folder icon requires that you select an image in a correct Windows icon type. You are able to download free windows desktop icons from the Internet, but what when you have a certain picture in mind and just want to create a desktop icon from your own picture?

If you need to make a Windows desktop icon from any image, you require a tool to perform icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not have any built-in icon converter to make Windows icons out of pictures. How can you create a Windows icon in this situation? Use a side tool like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Wait a second! A professional application to make and transform icons? They should require a skillful designer to operate, right? Wrong! Any user is able to create an original Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you need to create your own icons is an image you choose and an icon transforming application.

It only requires a minute to make a perfect icon from any picture file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, simply start Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them into ICO format. Select options for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the image with a cut instrument, and you've got an original Windows icon that you can assign to any directory! Your new icon initially has all the resolutions that are necessary to place your folder properly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you select. Compact view, list view or large view will look equally pleasant, with cool transparency effects and smooth borders.
