Converting Images into Icons

If you need to make a Windows desktop icon from any image, choose Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes a minute to craft a great-looking icon of any graphic file. Simply choose the size and opacity!

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

If you need to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you require an application to perform icon conversion. It so happens that Windows does not have any built-in icon converter to make Windows icons from image files. How would you get a Windows icon in this situation? Use a side tool like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Wait a second! A pro-grade software to make and convert icons? These should require a skillful designer to operate, yes? Wrong! Anyone is able to create a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to make your own icons is an image you like and an icon transforming tool.

It only takes a minute to make a perfect icon from any graphic file. To convert a picture to a Windows icon, simply start Any to Icon and load files to the list. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and transforms them to ICO files. Select options for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the picture with a crop instrument, and you have a native Windows icon that can be assigned to any folder! Your new icon already has all the resolutions that are necessary to place your directory correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you specify. Compact view, list view or big view will look equally great, with cool opacity options and smooth edges.

Need advanced options such as shadows or opacity? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! Those Windows icon makers allow you to modify icons in the exe-files, craft and modify Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
