It only requires seconds to create a perfect icon out of any image file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and add files to the program. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them to ICO files. Define properties for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Square the picture with a crop tool, and you've got an original Windows icon which can be assigned to any folder! Your new icon already has all the resolutions that are necessary to view your folder correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you determine. Small view, list view or big view will appear equally nice, with cool transparency options and sleek edges.
