Have you tried personalizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a directory icon requires that you specify an image in a correct Windows icon type. You are able to download many windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what when you have a certain picture in account and just want to create a desktop icon from that picture?
If you need to make a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you need an application to perform icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not have any default converter to create Windows icons from image files. How would you create a Windows icon then? Use a third-party tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A professional application to make and convert icons? They must need a skillful designer to work with, right? Wrong! Anyone is able to make an original Windows XP or Windows Vienna 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 conversion application.
It only takes seconds to create a great-looking icon from any image file. To convert an image 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 converts them to ICO format. Define properties for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Square the image with a crop tool, and you've got a native Windows icon which you can assign to any folder! Your new icon initially has all the resolutions that are required to place your directory correctly in Windows Explorer no matter what view resolution you specify. Small view, list view or big view will appear equally pleasant, with neat transparency effects and sleek borders.
