More options for creating a favicon

In my past post about creating favicon online nicolas sent me a comment with a link to another good tool for creating favicons. It's a favicon generator from images. All you need to do is to upload 16x16 or 32x32 .gif or .png file and it will generate the favicon for you. You can find this tool on Web Script lab.


If you have, you can also download a plugin that will save your image like a favicon - so you can make your favicon also offline.

There are many options also online if you don't want to make your favicon. One is to search for them. I've also found one favicon gallery.


All this talk about favicon. And how to insert the favicon? If you have a favicon file named favicon.ico in the same folder that the web page you're trying to add it to, in the head if the page add the following line of code:

<link REL="SHORTCUT ICON" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

Looks like nicoals is a bot, since I've created a new post based on his previous comment :)
