Professional icon maker

This web application allows creation of 16x16 icons (favicons) using simple drawing tools. If you require a crystal-clear icon with smooth edges, shadows, or other advanced effects, please consider using our professional 3D icon editor.

How to use it:

  • Select one of basic colors by clicking on a color square on the right side of the window.
  • Erase pixels by drawing with transparent color (checkboard) or erase the entire canvas by clicking the Clear Canvas toolbar button.
  • Select a custom color by typing its hexadecimal web color code to the box under the default colors and click the 'Set' button
  • Choose drawing tool by clicking a button in the toolbar:
    • "Pencil" is changing colors of pixels when a mouse is moving over the canvas while the left button is pressed.
    • "Lines" draws a line from the point where the mouse button was pressed to the point where it was released.
    • "Dropper" allows to set current color from an icon's pixel.
  • Create favicon from a jpg or png picture using the box under the editor window. (Alpha channel is not supported.)
  • Download your new icon by simply clicking the 'Download Icon' button in the toolbar.
