Did you ever try personalizing a directory on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a directory icon requires that you specify an image in a correct Windows icon format.

If you need to create a Windows desktop icon out of any picture, you need an application to perform icon conversion.

All you need to make your own icon files is an image you like and an icon transforming application.
It only takes seconds to make a fine-looking icon from any picture file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, simply start Any to Icon and load files to the list. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and transforms them to ICO format. Select options for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the picture with a crop instrument, and you have an original Windows icon that you can assign to any directory! The new icon already has all sizes that are necessary to place your directory properly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you determine. Small view, list view or large view will look equally great, with neat opacity effects and sleek edges.
