Today we will learn How to make an Icon as you need.You will create your own icon from picture or drawing anything.So lets go.......

We will make Icon By using IconFX.

To create an icon using IcoFX follow these steps:

1. Start IcoFX.

2. Create a new empty icon using the "File/New..." menu item.

3. On the New Image dialog select the size 256x256 and the data type True Color + Alpha channel

4. Draw your icon.

5. Your icon contains only one image format. Use the "Icon/Create Windows Icon From Image..." menu item to add all the needed image formats to the icon. The default settings on this dialog will do in most cases.

Use the "Icon/Create Macintosh Icon From Image..." menu item if you would like to create a Macintosh icon.

7. If you would like to create Windows Vista compatible icons with PNG compression then make sure that there is a 256x256 sized image in your icon and that the "Options/Preferences/Options/Compress 256x256 images for Windows Vista" option is checked.

6. Save the icon using the "File/Save As..." menu item. On the save dialog choose the desired output format in the "Save as type" combo box.

Here I am describe “How to make icon”.
• Open the desired picture in a photo editor program.
• Crop the image.
• Use the Magic Wand tool to erase large areas of the background.
• Use the Lasso tool to delete the rest of the background.
• Add a background color if desired.
• If leaving the background transparent, add a shadow.
• Save the image.
• Add the icon to your icon folder.
