What to use to create a favour icon?
A favour icon file favicon.ico is an image file. But, the file type is not one of file types in a regular image editor such as Photoshop. What is the normal procedure of producing the file?

I use MSPaint (mspaint.exe) to create a 16 X 16 .bmp image and
call it "favicon.bmp". Then I use IRFanView ( http://www.irfanview.com/ )
to convert the .bmp to .ico
In the saving of an .ico, you can also specify a transparency color.
It works great and it's free... you already have mspaint, and IrfanView
is also free.

Why not use the tool at favicon.com to create it for you?

I use Photoshop to make the image at it's normal size, then go to the website below, upload the image, and it will let you download your imae as a .ico.
