An easy way to make favicon.ico icons

Blog | Feb. 21, 2010

C’mon, it’s 2010. Favicons have been in style for about a decade now. And yet Photoshop can’t make them. (If you like owning a second image editing app) GraphicConverter can sorta do them if you know what you’re doing. Favicons are 16×16 icons that, for some unfathomable reason, are nearly impossible to make. Luckily, I stumbled onto a tool from HTML Kit, which produces nicely antialiased results:

How many versions of Photoshop and Adobe CS have come out since favicons have been popular? There has to be some reason beyond me responsible for this lack of support. Either that or this is some kind of bizarre blind spot on Adobe’s part for making one of the most ubiquitous and simplest images on the web.
