Folder icon problem

I have a folder which contains avi clip and a picture. The picture is shown in folder icon, it's pretty cool. But i wondered if it's possible to use the picture as icon (only the picture). I've already tried to change jpeg format to icon and then changed from properties > customize > Change icon but the icon is very bad quality and when using extra large icons the folder icon doesen't get bigger. Please someone help!
