How to create your favicon using Photoshop

Ever noticed that some sites would display a nifty icon beside its name on the browser's url field? These 16x16 pixel images are called favicons. You can make one for yourself, but you need to have administrator access on your site because you have to upload the icon file onto the root of your site (where the index.html is located, for example).

One easy way to create your favicon is through the use of Photoshop. IF you already have this application, that is. It does not natively support the .ico file format but you can get a free plugin that will enable this. Download this from PhotoshopSupport.com. The instructions are very straightforward. Soon your site will sport its very own favicon!

Now, I wonder if I can do this on my Blogger blogs...
