If you have to create a Windows desktop icon of any image, select Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires a minute to create a fine-looking icon from any image file. Just set the resolution and opacity!
Did you ever try personalizing a directory on your desktop with an icon? Choosing a directory icon requires that you select an image in a valid Windows icon format. You can download free windows desktop icons from the Web, but what if you have a specific image in account and just want to create a desktop icon from your own image?
If you want to make a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you require a tool to do the icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not contain any built-in icon software to make Windows icons out of graphic files. How would you make a Windows icon in this situation? Get a third-party application such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A professional software to create and convert icons? They should need a skillful designer to operate, right? No! Anyone is able to create a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to create your own icon files is a picture you choose and an icon conversion tool.
It only takes seconds to create a great-looking icon from any picture file. To transform a picture to a Windows icon, just start Any to Icon and load files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them to ICO files. Select properties for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the image with a cut tool, and you have an original Windows icon which can be assigned to any folder! Your new icon initially contains all sizes that are required to place your directory correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you determine. Compact view, list view or large view will appear equally pleasant, with neat transparency effects and smooth edges.
Require advanced options such as shadows or translucency? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! Those Windows icon makers enable you to modify icons in the exe-files, make and edit Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
