Did you ever try customizing a directory on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a directory icon needs that you select an image in a correct Windows icon format.

Everything you need to create your personal icon files is an image you like and an icon conversion tool.
It only takes seconds to create a perfect icon from any picture file. To convert a picture to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and add files to the program. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them into ICO files. Define options for your icon, such as the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the image with a crop instrument, and you have an original Windows icon that can be assigned to any folder! Your new icon initially has all sizes that are required to place your directory properly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you specify. Small view, list view or large view will look equally nice, with neat transparency effects and sleek borders.
