Transforming Images into Icons

If you want to create a Windows desktop icon of any image, select Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires seconds to make a perfect icon of any image file. Just choose the size and transparency!

Did you ever try personalizing a folder on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a directory icon needs that you specify a picture in a correct Windows icon type. You are able to download many windows desktop graphics from the Web, but what when you have a specific image in mind and just want to create a desktop icon from that image?

If you want to create a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you need an application to perform icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not contain any built-in icon software to make Windows icons from graphic files. How can you get a Windows icon then? Use a side application such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Weird! A pro-grade software to create and convert icons? They must require a skillful designer to operate, right? Wrong! Any user is able to create a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vista icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you need to make your own icons is an image you choose and an icon conversion tool.

It only takes a minute to create a perfect icon from any picture file. To convert an image to a Windows icon, simply start Any to Icon and add files to the program. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and converts them to ICO format. Select options for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the picture with a cut instrument, and you have an original Windows icon that you can assign to any directory! The new icon already has all sizes that are required to view your directory properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view resolution you select. Small view, list view or large view will look equally great, with neat transparency effects and sleek edges.

Need advanced options such as shadows or translucency? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! These Windows icon editors enable you to edit icons in the exe-files, craft and modify Windows XP icons and Windows Vista icons.
