Did you ever try customizing a directory on your desktop using an icon? Selecting a directory icon needs that you specify an image in a correct Windows icon format. You can download free windows desktop icons from the Web, but what when you have a certain picture in account and simply want to create a desktop icon from that image?
If you want to create a Windows desktop icon out of any picture, you need an application to do the icon transformation. It appears that Windows does not have any default software to create Windows icons out of pictures. How would you get a Windows icon then? Get a side tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A professional software to make and transform icons? These must need an experienced designer to operate, right? Wrong! Anyone can make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vista icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you need to make your own icons is an image you like and an icon transforming application.
It only requires a minute to create a great-looking icon from any graphic file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, just launch Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them to ICO files. Select properties for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the image with a cut tool, and you have a native Windows icon which can be assigned to any folder! The new icon already 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 big view will look equally pleasant, with neat transparency effects and smooth edges.
