Free Favicons from Images

Have you ever noticed that some sites have their logo next to their name in your favorites? You might also notice it in your web browser's address bar. These are called favicons.

Favicons are mini (16×16 pixel) graphics that allow you to establish a visual connection with a web site. It is a simple marketing tool to help your website stand out among other bookmarks. If you have a website, it is a simple matter to create a favicon.

Just visit Favicons from Pics at http://www.html-kit.com/favicon/ and follow the instructions on screen. They can resize just about any image and then convert it into a favicon for you.

Once you have the favicons, you will need to connect to your web server and upload your favicon to the root folder of your site. Then, add the HTML code included in the favicon's ReadMe.txt file to the head section of your Web page.

Give it a few minutes. Sometimes it takes a little bit of time before it starts to display.

Let me know how it works out for you! Feel free to post questions in the comments below. Good luck!
