    Hi Vanessa -

     

    Your file appears to NOT be a valid icon file, and If I am correct, the link to it should be in the head section of your page.

    You need to download the Photoshop icon plug-in to make an actual .ico file type

     

    http://www.mediacollege.com/adobe/photoshop/plugins/ico/

     

    Once you have the plug-in installed, .ico becomes an option when you save.

     

    You don't actually need to use any kind of link in your <head> section. Simply placing the .ico file in your site's root folder is enough. If the OCD kicks in and won't allow you to leave an image floating out there next to your index.html, you can put it in an image folder and add the link to your head section.

    You don't need a Photoshop plug-in.  Just Save for Web as .png.  Then change file extension to .ico.

    Yeah. I resemble that.
