Snarky details don't help people. You still didn't provide an answer. Where can I get a 64 bit CS6 plug-in for .ICO? Based on my web research, one doesn't exist yet, which means if you upgrade to CS6, you cannot create favicons.
For Mac users that may well be true. Where is it written that every question must have a positive answer?
My response was not snarky, it answered your specific question. Snarky would be to tell you to go get a PC, where compatibility with older software is more highly prized and expected, but I didn't do that.
Just so it's clear, I'm just another Photoshop user. Honestly, if I knew of a source for 64 bit icon format plug-ins for you I'd point you to it.
Does this one work in CS6 64 on a Mac? Under the link for Mac CS5 it says Mac CS5, CS6, so maybe it will:
I’m a PC person so can’t look inside the DMG file. Is there an explicitly 64-bit version of the Mac CS5 plug-in in it or not?
You might try to contact the plug-in author using the Help link next to the download link and see if they respond and can confirm the plug-in works with CS6 as suggested by the download link caption, but nowhere else.
I have Mac OS X 10.8+ and just downloaded CS6. I added that file format plugin to the plugins folder and was able to get it to work. I was also able to get it to work if I nested it in the plugins folder under another folder named File Formats. Remember, it won't show these file formats if the SIZE is too big. I believe it has to be under 260px X 260px (recommended 64x64 or smaller) in order to be a favicon img... or something close to that. Hope this helps!
I need a link to an actual free ICO plugin to be able to install!
I tried this one but it seems a dud.
Tyler's correct. Works on 10.6.8 and CS6, too - but 256px * 256px is the limit. you won't be able to use any bigger size as an icon in windows, anyways. Simply put http://www.telegraphics.com.au/sw/product/ICOFormat#icoformat in the plug-ins folder within the Adobe Photoshop CS6 folder…
Thanks Ludwig, I am running CS6 on XP Pro SP3, followed the http://www.telegraphics.com.au/sw/product/ICOFormat#icoformat link you provided, downloaded the proper file for my comp, actually read the installation directions, and had my first ICO file created and up on my site in less than 5 minutes. Thanks for the help!
Guys... It's right you should put it in Plug-ins folder which is directly under Photoshop CS6 folder. If it didn't show up just restart photoshop while holding ctrl+alt+shift and that will set Photoshop preferences and you will see the option "ICO (Windows Icon) (*.ICO)" under "save to".
Note: you must have a square image with maximum 256*256 resolution to see it.
I downloaded the latest plugin for Mac CS5 from http://telegraphics.com.au/sw/product/ICOFormat
and it works fine in Mac PS CS5.1 and CS6. (I must have been using an older plugin earlier.)
