Did you ever try personalizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a folder icon needs that you specify a picture in a correct Windows icon format. You are able to download free windows desktop graphics from the Web, but what if you have a certain picture in mind and simply want to create a desktop icon from that picture?
If you need to create a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you require an application to perform icon transformation. It so happens that Windows does not have any built-in icon converter to make Windows icons from image files. How would you create a Windows icon then? Get a third-party tool like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A pro-grade software to create and convert icons? These must require a skillful designer to operate, right? Wrong! Any user is able to create an original Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you require to make your own icon files is an image you choose and an icon transforming tool.
It only requires seconds to make a fine-looking icon out of any picture file. To convert 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 files and transforms them to ICO format. Specify properties for your icon, such as the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the picture with a cut tool, and you have an original Windows icon that you can assign to any directory! Your new icon initially contains all sizes that are required to view your directory properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you determine. Compact view, list view or big view will look equally nice, with cool opacity options and sleek borders.
