When you want to make a Windows desktop icon from any image, use Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires seconds to create a great-looking icon of any graphic file. Just select the resolution and opacity!
Have you tried customizing a folder on your desktop with an icon? Selecting a directory icon needs that you select a picture in a valid Windows icon type. You can download many windows desktop icons from the Internet, but what if you have a certain image in mind and just want to make a desktop icon from your own picture?
If you want to create a Windows desktop icon from any image, you need an application to do the icon transformation. It appears that Windows does not contain any built-in icon software to create Windows icons out of graphic files. How can you get a Windows icon in this situation? Get a third-party application like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Wait a second! A professional application to create and convert icons? They should require an experienced designer to work with, yes? No! Anyone can make an original Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you need to create your personal icon files is an image you like and an icon conversion application.
It only requires a minute to make a perfect icon from any picture file. To convert 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 files and converts them into ICO files. Specify properties for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the picture with a crop tool, and you've got an original Windows icon that can be assigned to any directory! The new icon already has all sizes that are required to view your folder correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you determine. Small view, list view or large view will appear equally great, with cool transparency effects and sleek edges.
