Converting Graphics into Icons

When you need to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, select Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires seconds to create a great-looking icon of any image file. Simply set the resolution and transparency!

Did you ever try personalizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a directory icon needs that you select a picture in a correct Windows icon format. You are able to download free windows desktop graphics from the Web, but what if you have a certain image in mind and simply want to make a desktop icon out of that picture?

If you want to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you require a tool to do the icon transformation. It appears that Windows does not contain any default converter to make Windows icons out of graphic files. How would you get a Windows icon in this situation? Use a side application such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Wait a second! A professional application to create and transform icons? They should need a skillful designer to operate, right? Wrong! Any user can make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you require to create your personal icon files is an image you like and an icon transforming tool.

It only takes seconds to create a perfect icon out of any graphic file. To convert a picture to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and load files to the list. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and converts them into ICO format. Define properties for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the picture with a cut instrument, and you've got an original Windows icon that you can assign to any directory! Your new icon already has all sizes that are required to view your folder properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view resolution you specify. Small view, list view or big view will appear equally nice, with neat transparency effects and sleek borders.

Need advanced features such as shadows or opacity? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! Those Windows icon editors allow you to modify icons in the exe-files, craft and edit Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
