How do I make favicons?



How do I make favicons?   


A favicon is the icon you see in place of the default "e" when you bookmark a site in Internet Explorer.

favicon example


In order to make your own icon, you need a special program that can save images with the .ico extension.

You can download this program, IconArt, for free from my site. This program can also create custom cursors and save them as .cur or .ani. It is not a trial version, it is the full working version with no time limits and no advertisements. It is included on my site with permission of the creators. If you download this program from my site, please please please consider making a small donation to my hosting costs. The program is large, and with so many people downloading it, it gets very expensive for me to offer. A donation is not required, but it very much appreciated.


Donate towards my web hosting bill!    download IconArt



IconArt is freeware and is provided as is. Download and use the program at your own risk. This program is for PC only.

After you've downloaded and installed the program, you can begin making your own icon. In order for the icon to appear on your site, you have to own your own domain.

You should be all set! If you can't see your icon when you bookmark your site, it's likely that you didn't upload it into the proper directory.
