When you want to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, choose Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires seconds to craft a fine-looking icon from any graphic file. Simply choose the resolution and opacity!
Have you tried customizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Selecting a directory icon needs that you specify an image in a valid Windows icon format. You can download free windows desktop icons from the Web, but what when you have a specific image in account and just want to create a desktop icon out of your own picture?
If you need to create a Windows desktop icon from any image, you need a tool to do the icon transformation. It appears that Windows does not have any built-in icon converter to make Windows icons out of pictures. How would you create a Windows icon then? Use a side application such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A professional software to make and convert icons? They should require an experienced designer to operate, right? No! Any user can make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon with Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! Everything you require to make your own icon files is a picture you like and an icon conversion tool.
It only requires a minute to make a fine-looking icon from any graphic file. To convert a picture to a Windows icon, just start Any to Icon and load files to the program. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them to ICO files. Select options for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Square the image with a cut tool, and you have an original Windows icon that can be assigned to any folder! Your new icon already has all the resolutions that are required to view your folder properly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you specify. Compact view, list view or large view will look equally nice, with cool transparency options and smooth edges.
Need complicated options such as shades or translucency? Try IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! Those Windows icon makers allow you to modify icons in the exe-files, create and modify Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
