Favicon Generator: favicons made easy

Have you ever seen a site with a really awesome favicon -- that tiny icon that shows up in bookmarks and address bars -- and wondered how to get one yourself? Favicon Generator makes it totally simple, with two different ways to get exactly the icon you want. You can upload any image, or make your own with a pixel-level editor. Then Favicon Generator does the rest, and gives you a .ico file that you can use with your site.

Generator mode is where you can upload your gifs, jpgs and pngs to be converted. The Generator will resize them to the standard 16x16 pixel favicon size for you, but you can easily get a full-sized .ico instead by clicking a checkbox. In Editor mode, you draw your own icon on an oversized 16x16 grid, using any web colors you like. There's no option to enlarge the grid, so this is no solution for serious pixel-art projects. When it comes to favicons, though, it's the perfect tool for the task.
