Have you tried customizing a directory on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a folder icon needs that you select an image in a valid Windows icon type. You can download free windows desktop icons from the Web, but what when you have a certain image in account and just want to make a desktop icon out of that image?
If you need to create a Windows desktop icon from any image, you need a tool to perform icon transformation. It so happens that Windows does not have any default converter to make Windows icons out of graphic files. How would you make a Windows icon in this situation? Use a side tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A professional application to make and convert icons? These should require a skillful designer to operate, yes? No! Anyone is able to make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vista icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to make your own icon files is a picture you choose and an icon transforming application.
It only requires a minute to create a fine-looking icon out of any picture file. To convert a picture to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and converts them to ICO files. Specify properties for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the image with a cut instrument, and you've got an original Windows icon that you can assign to any folder! Your new icon already contains all the resolutions that are necessary to place your folder correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you select. Small view, list view or large view will look equally pleasant, with cool transparency effects and smooth borders.
