Favicon export

Jan 8, 2010 6:55 AM

Hi there,

 

I just came accross the favicon export extension (John Dunning) but now it turns out it's not for Mac. Is there another developer who has something cooked up for Mac? One would expect that something like this would be standard to FW CS4.

    The extension does work on the Mac, but FW usually hangs after it runs, unfortunately.  You then have to force-quit FW, which is obviously pretty inconvenient.  I'm hoping that CS5 will include a fix for the bug.

    What was the error?

     

    At favicon sizes, downsampling doesn't really work well.  You basically have to hand-edit the bitmap.

    things would be much more easier if you use an online favicon generator.

    The Export As Favicon extension does work on the Mac now if you're using Fireworks CS5.  You can download the new version here: http://bit.ly/2iVLr
