When you need to make a Windows desktop icon of any image, select Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes seconds to craft a great-looking icon from any graphic file. Simply choose the resolution and opacity!
Have you tried personalizing a folder on your desktop with an icon? Choosing a folder icon needs that you specify an image in a valid Windows icon type. You can download many windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what when you have a specific image in account and just want to make a desktop icon out of your own image?
If you want to create a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you require an application to perform icon conversion. It so happens that Windows does not have any built-in icon software 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!
Wait a second! A professional software to make and convert icons? These should need a skillful designer to work with, yes? No! Any user can make an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to create your own icons is a picture you choose and an icon conversion tool.
It only requires a minute to make a perfect icon from any picture file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, just start Any to Icon and load files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and converts them to ICO files. Select properties for your icon, such as the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the picture with a crop instrument, and you have an original Windows icon which can be assigned to any directory! Your new icon initially contains all the resolutions that are required to place your directory properly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you select. Compact view, list view or big view will look equally nice, with neat opacity effects and sleek edges.
Want complicated options such as shades or opacity? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! Those Windows icon makers enable you to alter icons in the exe-files, create and modify Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
