If you need to create a Windows desktop icon of any image, choose Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes a minute to craft a perfect icon from any graphic file. Just set the resolution and opacity!
Have you tried personalizing a directory on your desktop with an icon? Choosing a folder icon requires that you select a picture in a correct Windows icon format. You are able to download many windows desktop icons from the Internet, but what if you have a specific picture in mind and simply want to create a desktop icon from that picture?
If you want to make a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you need an application to do the icon transformation. It appears that Windows does not have any default converter to create Windows icons from pictures. How would you get a Windows icon in this situation? Get a side application like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A pro-grade application to make and convert icons? These should require an experienced designer to work with, right? Wrong! Anyone is able to make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to create your own icons is an image you like and an icon transforming tool.
It only requires seconds to make a great-looking icon out of any picture file. To transform a picture to a Windows icon, simply start Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and transforms them into ICO format. Specify options for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the picture with a crop tool, and you have a native Windows icon which you can assign to any folder! The new icon already contains all the resolutions that are necessary to place your folder correctly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you select. Small view, list view or large view will look equally nice, with cool opacity options and smooth edges.
