Converting Images into Icons

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

Did you ever try personalizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a folder icon requires that you specify a picture in a valid Windows icon type. You can download free windows desktop graphics from the Web, but what when you have a specific image in account and simply want to create a desktop icon out of that picture?

If you need to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you need a tool to perform icon transformation. It appears that Windows does not have any built-in icon converter to create Windows icons from image files. How can you create a Windows icon then? Get a third-party tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Weird! A pro-grade software to make and convert icons? They must need a skillful designer to operate, right? No! Anyone can create an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you need to create your own icon files is a picture you choose and an icon transforming tool.

It only requires a minute to create a perfect icon from any picture file. To transform a picture to a Windows icon, simply launch 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. Select options for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the image with a cut tool, and you've got a native Windows icon which can be assigned to any directory! Your new icon already contains all sizes that are required to view your folder correctly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you determine. Small view, list view or large view will appear equally pleasant, with cool transparency options and smooth edges.

Want complicated features such as shades or translucency? Try IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! These Windows icon editors enable you to alter icons inside exe-files, craft and modify Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
