Have you tried personalizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a directory icon needs that you specify an image in a correct Windows icon type. You can download many windows desktop icons from the Internet, but what if you have a specific image in mind and just want to create a desktop icon out of that image?
If you want to make a Windows desktop icon out of any picture, you require an application to do the icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not contain any default converter to create Windows icons out of pictures. How would you make a Windows icon then? Get a third-party tool like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A pro-grade application to make and convert icons? They must require a skillful designer to operate, right? Wrong! Anyone is able to make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you need to create your personal icon files is a picture you like and an icon transforming application.
It only takes seconds to make a great-looking icon out of any graphic file. To transform a picture to a Windows icon, simply launch Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them into ICO files. Define options for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Square the image with a crop instrument, and you have an original Windows icon that you can assign to any directory! Your new icon initially contains all sizes that are required to place your folder properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view resolution you determine. Small view, list view or big view will appear equally great, with cool transparency options and smooth edges.
