Did you ever try personalizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a directory icon requires that you specify a picture in a correct Windows icon type. You can download many windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what when you have a certain picture in mind and just want to make a desktop icon from that picture?
If you need to make a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you need a tool to do the icon conversion. It appears that Windows does not contain any built-in icon converter to create Windows icons from graphic files. How would you make a Windows icon then? Get a third-party application like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A professional application to make and convert icons? They must need a skillful designer to operate, yes? Wrong! Anyone is able to make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you need to create your own icons is an image you like and an icon conversion tool.
It only requires a minute to make a great-looking icon from any graphic file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, just start Any to Icon and add files to the program. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and transforms them to ICO format. Select properties for your icon, such as the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the picture with a crop instrument, and you've got an original Windows icon that can be assigned to any folder! Your new icon initially contains all sizes that are necessary to place your directory correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you select. Compact view, list view or big view will look equally great, with cool transparency options and smooth borders.
