Transforming Images into Icons

If you need to create a Windows desktop icon of any picture, choose Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes seconds to craft a great-looking icon from any image file. Simply choose the size and transparency!

Did you ever try personalizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Selecting a folder icon needs that you select a picture in a correct Windows icon type. You can download many windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what when you have a certain picture in mind and just want to make a desktop icon from that image?

If you need to create a Windows desktop icon from any image, you need an application to do the icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not have any default converter to make Windows icons from pictures. How would you create a Windows icon then? Use a side application like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Weird! A pro-grade application to create and convert icons? They should need an experienced designer to work with, yes? Wrong! Anyone is able to create a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to create your personal icon files is a picture you choose and an icon transforming tool.

It only requires seconds to make a fine-looking icon out of any graphic file. To convert an image to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and load files to the program. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and converts them into ICO format. Specify options for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the picture with a cut instrument, and you've got a native Windows icon that you can assign to any directory! Your new icon initially contains all the resolutions that are necessary to view your directory properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view resolution you specify. Compact view, list view or big view will appear equally nice, with neat transparency options and smooth edges.

Require complicated options such as shades or translucency? Try IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! These Windows icon editors enable you to modify icons inside exe-files, craft and modify Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
