Online fav-icon creator

Published by on November 4th 2006.

Fav-icon is an icon displayed by internet browser in favorites an in address bar. Our online favicon maker got a couple of new features and a slick new look and feel. Visitors can create their own fav-icons from pictures and modify them using pencil tool or by drawing lines.

Windows XP look and feel

Despite being a web-based application running in internet browser (and partially on the web server), the interface now looks and behaves just like an ordinary Windows XP program. This should make it easier for people to work with the tool, because they know how to use toolbar buttons or draw lines in an image editor.

Creating icons from pictures

Users can upload a .jpg or a .png image (without aplha channel) and it will be automatically rescaled and loaded into the editor. Tt may be then further modified and finally saved in Windows icon format.

Supported colors format

The created icon uses 8 bits per pixel and it is suitable for usage on all Windows versions. Since the favicon is small (just 16×16 pixel), the 8-bit color depth allows using any of the standard 16M colors. Users can either quickly choose color by clicking on a the palette or they can use a custom color specified by hexadecimal RGB html-compatible number.
