If you are working on developing a program or if you are a designer, we are sure that you often need to make an icon out of an image. Also, it often happens that you come across an icon of a program that you want to have as an image, so you can use it in your projects.
With the free program Quick Any2Ico available for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10 and 11, you will be able to create an icon from any image, as well as create an image from any icon you have on your computer in just a few moments.
How Does Quick Any2Ico Work?
Quick Any2Ico is a portable program, which means it has no installation. All you have to do is download and run it. When you run it, you will see a user interface that looks a bit outdated, but quite good-looking. In addition to this, it may seem crowded, but don’t let this discourage you, the program is extremely easy to use.
The first thing you need to do is choose the way you want to make the icon. You can do this in three ways. You can select an image or file that has the icon you want, you can “extract” the icon from the binary file or capture the icon from any active window.
This last option is especially interesting. When you select it, next to the option name is a picture of the target that you can move to any window. Then the Quick Any2Ico program will display all the icons detected within that window, and all you need to do is select the icon you want to use.
The next step, if you use the first two options, is to set the path to the file that contains the icon you want. After this, you need to choose where you want to save the icon image, the format in which you want to save it, and here you can choose ICO and PNG, image resolution, and if the icon is not square, whether it will be centered, stretched or cropped. Now just click the Convert it! button and you will get an image of the icon.
Quick Any2Ico Is a Simple Program That Works Quite Well
Quick Any2Ico is a great program and we did not encounter any errors during use. When you use it to make icons from an image, the process is simple and you will quickly get icons that you can use in your projects.
When you use it to extract images from icons, the image quality you get may vary and depends on the image resolution of the icon itself. However, in most of the images we made, the quality was quite solid. This was not the case only when we tried Quick Any2Ico on old programs. Then we got images whose resolution was so bad that they were unusable.
