Converting Images into Icons

If you need to make a Windows desktop icon from any picture, use Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes seconds to craft a fine-looking icon of any graphic file. Simply choose the resolution and opacity!

Did you ever try personalizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a folder icon needs that you select a picture in a valid Windows icon format. You can download free windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what if you have a certain image in account and just want to make a desktop icon from that image?

If you need to make a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you require a tool to perform icon conversion. It so happens that Windows does not have any built-in icon software to make Windows icons from graphic files. How would you make a Windows icon in this situation? Use a side tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Weird! A professional software to make and transform icons? They should need an experienced designer to operate, yes? No! Anyone can make an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to create your personal icons is an image you choose and an icon conversion application.

It only requires seconds to create a fine-looking icon out of any picture file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, simply launch 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. Define properties for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the picture with a cut tool, and you have a native Windows icon which you can assign to any folder! The new icon already contains all the resolutions that are necessary to place your folder correctly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you determine. Compact view, list view or large view will look equally nice, with neat transparency options and sleek edges.

Require complicated options such as shadows or opacity? Try IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! These Windows icon editors allow you to edit icons in the exe-files, make and edit Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
