When you have to make a Windows desktop icon of any picture, use Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires seconds to make a fine-looking icon of any graphic file. Just choose the resolution and opacity!
Did you ever try customizing a folder on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a folder icon needs that you select a picture in a correct Windows icon type. You are able to download many windows desktop icons from the Internet, but what if you have a certain picture in mind and just want to create a desktop icon out of your own picture?
If you want to make a Windows desktop icon from any image, you need an application to do the icon conversion. It so happens that Windows does not have any default software to create Windows icons out of image files. How can you make a Windows icon in this situation? Get a side application such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A pro-grade software to create and convert icons? These should need an experienced designer to work with, yes? Wrong! Any user is able to make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vista icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you require to make your personal icon files is an image you like and an icon conversion tool.
It only requires seconds to make a great-looking icon from any picture file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, simply start Any to Icon and load files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and converts them to ICO format. Select properties for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Square the image with a crop tool, and you have an original Windows icon that can be assigned to any folder! The new icon initially contains all the resolutions that are required to place your folder correctly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you select. Small view, list view or large view will appear equally pleasant, with neat opacity effects and smooth borders.
Require complicated features such as shadows or opacity? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! Those Windows icon makers enable you to alter icons in the exe-files, craft and edit Windows XP icons and Windows Vista icons.
