When you need to make a Windows desktop icon of any image, choose Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires seconds to craft a fine-looking icon from any graphic file. Simply choose the resolution and opacity!
Did you ever try personalizing a directory on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a directory icon needs that you specify an image in a correct Windows icon format. You can download many windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what when you have a certain image in account and simply want to create a desktop icon from that image?
If you want to make a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you require a tool to do the icon conversion. It so happens that Windows does not contain any default software to create Windows icons from pictures. How would you create a Windows icon then? Use a third-party application such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A professional application to create and convert icons? They should require an experienced designer to operate, yes? No! Any user can make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you need to create your personal icons is an image you choose and an icon conversion tool.
It only takes a minute to make a perfect icon out of any image file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, simply 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. Specify options for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the image with a crop instrument, and you have a native Windows icon which you can assign to any folder! The new icon initially has all sizes that are necessary to view your folder correctly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you determine. Compact view, list view or large view will look equally great, with neat opacity options and sleek borders.
