When you have to create a Windows desktop icon of any picture, select Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It takes seconds to create a perfect icon of any graphic file. Simply choose the size and opacity!
Did you ever try personalizing a directory on your desktop with 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 Internet, but what when you have a specific image in account and just want to make a desktop icon from your own picture?
If you need to make a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you need a tool to perform icon transformation. It so happens that Windows does not have any built-in icon converter to make Windows icons out of pictures. How can you make a Windows icon then? Get a third-party application such as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A pro-grade application to create and convert icons? These should need an experienced designer to work with, yes? Wrong! Anyone is able to make an original Windows XP or Windows Vista icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you require to create your own icons is a picture you choose and an icon conversion tool.
It only requires a minute to make a fine-looking icon out of any picture file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, simply launch Any to Icon and add files to the program. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and converts them to ICO format. Specify properties for your icon, like the size (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the picture with a cut instrument, and you have an original Windows icon which can be assigned to any directory! The new icon initially contains all the resolutions that are necessary to view your directory properly in Windows Explorer no matter what view size you determine. Compact view, list view or big view will appear equally nice, with neat transparency options and smooth borders.
Want complicated features such as shades or translucency? Take a look at IconLover or ArtIcons Pro! Those Windows icon makers enable you to alter icons inside exe-files, create and modify Windows XP icons and Windows Vienna icons.
