How to convert your image into a favicon

Most graphics programs are not able to generate .ico files, and renaming the extension to .ico will not work either. Good thing there are free services online who will do the conversion for you.

One such service (and one I have tried so I'm sure it works great) is iconverticons. To create your favicon, simply generate one using your favourite graphics editor and save it as either jpg, gif, or png.  Then upload it to iconverticons.  The system will then process your upload and churn out various icon sizes.

You will want the 16 x 16 pixel favicon, which is at the bottom of the list.  I recommend that when you make your favicon, try to see how it will look like when at this size to save on time and effort.
