Can I change my Win 7 64 bit mouse pointer to a small photo?

Is it possible to change my mouse pointer to a small picture or silhouette of my Black Lab's head?

I use CursorFX from Stardock to use small racecars and tribal weapons for cursors.

DMHolt57, Thank you. It is good to know that it is possible. If I have a small photo of my Black Lab or even download a silhouette of one, what do I need to do to make it a cursor (or is that where Cursor FX fits in)? Then what do I do to get it into my cursors in Windows 7 64-bit?

Hi :PooMan UK,

Thank you. I installed CursorFX on my desktop. Where can I find instructions on how to convert a jpeg photo of my Black Lab and use it in Windows 7 64-bit?
Thanks for your help.

Hi,

I have read tutorials but they all seemed to tell me how to select a new cursor, not how to make one from a photo. I would be very pleased if you would make a cursor for me from the attached photo, or if it is not a good photo to use,j please let me know and I will send different one or will resize thisone if that is needed..

I was not sure whether jpg or png was best so I attached both.
