Process digital image files and create icons for Windows and Mac OS X. Format the source material with no quality loss by specifying the part of the original picture to manage, resize the entire canvas automatically, copy and distribute multiple icon copies, etc.

Picture2Icon is, as its name clearly suggests, is an application that enables you to convert photos to icon formats on your Mac. The program works with various image formats, provides you with plenty of output configurations, and offers you quality results in minimum time.

You can work with this utility whenever you wish to change the appearance of your desktop by using your own photos as folder icons. Once the input image is selected, the application gives you access to an integrated cropping tool, lets you configure some basic output settings (corners and shadow options), and shows you preview windows for various output resolutions (256x256, 128x128, 64x64, 48x48, 32x32, and 16x16).

I like the fact that the program offers support for batch processing. This feature comes in handy whenever you wish to process more than one picture at a time, using the same output configurations.

Another good aspect about this image tool is that it preserves the original quality of the input file as it uses advanced re-sampling filters.

As a conclusion, Picture2Icon proves to be a simple yet effective utility that helps you turn your favorite photos into icon files. The app brings a straightforward interface, doesn't require advanced image editing experience, and offers you high-quality output.
