Found this cool website that provides a tool to convert pictures or images into FavIcon. It’s very simple to use, just upload the picture you want and once submitted, you can download the converted file that is stored in a zip file.. just follow the simple instruction and viola! you have your very own FavIcon for your website in matter of minutes 🙂
To use this tool, go to http://www.html-kit.com/favicon/
Here’s the readme file i downloaded..
* The favicon
favicon.ico — The favicon file (supports both 16*16 and 32*32 dimensions).
You can add a favicon to your web page by uploading favicon.ico to your
website and inserting the following HTML tag inside the
section of your web page.
Optional: if you would like to display the animated favicon, upload
animated_favicon1.gif as well and insert the following HTML tags.
If you would like to test the favicon after updating your web page, the
Favicon Validator can check the favicon files and tags on your website.
* Other extra files in this package
The following files are included for your convenience. You don’t have to
upload or do anything else with these optional files.
preview_16x16.png — 16*16 PNG image file of the favicon.
