If you have to create a Windows desktop icon of any picture, choose Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes seconds to create a fine-looking icon of any graphic file. Simply select the size and transparency!
Have you tried customizing a directory on your desktop with an icon? Choosing a directory icon needs that you specify an image in a correct Windows icon format. You can download many windows desktop icons from the Internet, but what when you have a specific picture in account and simply want to make a desktop icon from your own picture?
If you need to make a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you require an application to do the icon transformation. It appears that Windows does not have any default converter to create Windows icons out of pictures. How can you create a Windows icon then? Get a third-party application such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A professional application to make and transform icons? These must need an experienced designer to work with, yes? Wrong! Any user is able to make an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you need to make your personal icons is a picture you like and an icon conversion tool.
It only requires a minute to create a fine-looking icon from any picture file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, simply launch Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and converts them into ICO files. Select properties for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the image with a cut tool, and you have an original Windows icon that can be assigned to any folder! Your new icon initially contains all sizes that are required to view your directory properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view resolution you select. Small view, list view or large view will appear equally pleasant, with neat opacity options and smooth borders.
