Everything you require to create your own icon files is an image you choose and an icon conversion application.
It only requires a minute to make a perfect icon from any picture file. To transform a picture to a Windows icon, simply launch Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and converts them into ICO files. Define properties for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the picture with a cut instrument, and you have a native Windows icon that can be assigned to any directory! Your new icon initially contains all sizes that are required to place your directory correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you select.
