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.

pretty good actually. The other comments saying "not enough colors" are bullshit. Just put in the hex code and there you go

This is a great tool to help differentiate various intranet sites quickly. It would be nice if the webtool could do more that 16x16, because I am prevented from downloading and installing anything. Thank you for making something at all fully web based though!
