Hey,

Well you first off need to create the facicon and save it in the root of your site then in your page put the following:-

<link rel="Shortcut Icon" href="favicon.ico" />

Within the Head Tags for it to work

Hope that helps

Yep.. Basically save a 16x16px gif as "favicon.ico" add ^ to your head and you're good to go. Make sure to clear your cache in Firefox the first time after and you'll see it pop up

you can always download a program to change a .jpg to .ico
Do a google search like .ico changer or something like that.

There's a really cool plugin for PhotoShop that let's you do pretty much everything with icons, but if all you need is a favicon there's no reason to go that far. Like I said, just rename a 16x16 gif to .ico

Here is how you don't have to complicate your life. Upload your gif, jpg, png, or bmp image on this site and it will convert it to favicon ready for use
http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/

Or you can create it from scratch
http://www.favicon.cc/

Everyone here is empowered to voice their opinions. I don't understand the concern over the user name.
