Web Based GIF JPG to ICO Converter

Posted by David  •  Jun 22nd, 2006 11:15:48 pm - Subscribe | Mood: good | Music: Spinto Band - Oh Mandy

Hey guys here is a great web based gif jpg jpeg, ico converter. Simply locate the image on your desktop and upload it to FavIcon from Pics.

About Favicon
A favicon (short for "favorites icon"), also known as a page icon, is an icon associated with a particular website or webpage. A web designer can create such an icon, and many graphical web browsers—such as recent versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla, Opera, Safari, iCab, AOL Explorer, and Konqueror—can then make use of them. Browsers that support favicons may display them in the browser's URL bar, next to the site's name in lists of bookmarks, and next to the page's title in a tabbed document interface.

The original means of defining a favicon was by placing a file called favicon.ico in the root directory of a webserver. This would then automatically be used in Internet Explorer's favorites (bookmarks) display. Later, however, a more flexible system was created, using HTML to indicate the location of an icon for any given page. This is achieved by adding two link elements in the section of the document as detailed below. In this way, any appropriately sized (16×16 pixels or larger) image can be used, and although many still use the .ico format, other browsers now also support the animated GIF and PNG image formats.

Most modern browsers implement both methods. Because of this, web servers receive many requests for the file "favicon.ico" even if it doesn't exist. Another common problem is that the favicons may disappear if the browser's cache is emptied.

    awesome tool... wanted to have my Cruzer USB drive show up in explorer with it's own icon. Went to the Sandisk site, pulled a jpg image of the cruzer. Ran it through pic-to-ico site, downloaded the .ico and plopped it onto the the root of my USB drive. A quick edit to autorun.inf to set icon=cruzer.ico and I'm done. Thanks for the quick tool. -TT-
