Converting Images into Icons

If you want to make a Windows desktop icon of any image, choose Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes seconds to make a fine-looking icon from any graphic file. Just choose the resolution and opacity!

Did you ever try customizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Selecting a folder icon requires that you select a picture in a valid Windows icon type. You are able to download many windows desktop graphics from the Web, but what if you have a specific picture in mind and just want to create a desktop icon from that image?

If you need to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you need an application to do the icon conversion. It so happens that Windows does not contain any default converter to make Windows icons from image files. How would you create a Windows icon in this situation? Use a third-party application such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Weird! A professional software to create and transform icons? These must need a skillful designer to operate, right? No! Any user can create a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to create your own icon files is a picture you like and an icon conversion tool.

It only takes a minute to create a fine-looking icon out of any graphic file. To convert 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. Specify options for your icon, such as the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Square the image with a crop instrument, and you've got a native Windows icon which you can assign to any directory! The new icon initially has all the resolutions that are necessary to view your directory properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you specify. Small view, list view or big view will appear equally pleasant, with cool opacity options and smooth edges.

Need advanced options such as shadows or translucency? Try IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! Those Windows icon makers enable you to modify icons in the exe-files, craft and edit Windows XP icons and Windows Vista icons.
