    Creating an Icon

    Coxdabd Level 1
      Hello there,

      I need to create an icon and I am wondering if I can do that using Fireworks? I want to name the image with a .ico extension.

      Regards,

          First, *true* icon files are quite different from image types FW is
          supposed to edit. *True* ico files may contain several icons of different
          sizes and color depths. So, I'd suggest considering finding dedicated icon
          editor for your job - search download.com or tucows.com for them.

          Second, you may try using free software like IrfanView to convert png file
          created with FW to ico file. However, it will only allow a limited subset
          of ico features.

              Google, faviocn generator. You will find some online favicon gen's that will let you upload your file and will change it free online to a .ico format you can get size 16x16, 32x32 and some others.
