Transforming Graphics into Icons

When you want to create a Windows desktop icon from any image, select Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires a minute to make a great-looking icon of any image file. Just set the resolution and opacity!

Have you tried personalizing a folder on your desktop with an icon? Choosing a folder icon needs that you specify a picture in a valid Windows icon type. You can download free windows desktop graphics from the Web, but what when you have a certain image in account and just want to make a desktop icon from your own image?

If you need to make a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you need a tool to perform icon transformation. It appears that Windows does not contain any default software to create Windows icons out of image files. How can you make a Windows icon in this situation? Get a third-party tool such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Weird! A pro-grade application to create and convert icons? They must need an experienced designer to operate, yes? No! Anyone can create a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you need to make your own icon files is an image you choose and an icon transforming application.

It only takes seconds to create a perfect icon from any image file. To convert a picture to a Windows icon, simply start Any to Icon and load files to the list. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and converts them to ICO files. Select options for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Square the picture with a crop tool, and you've got an original Windows icon which you can assign to any folder! Your new icon already contains all sizes that are necessary to view your folder correctly in Windows Explorer no matter what view resolution you specify. Small view, list view or large view will appear equally nice, with cool transparency options and sleek borders.

Need complicated features such as shadows or translucency? Try IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! Those Windows icon editors enable you to alter icons inside exe-files, craft and edit Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
