video Make *.ico file in 30 seconds
Here's how to make an *.ico file in 30 seconds. No software to download...you need just a small picture. You can use *.gif, *.png and *.jpeg. Use this site: http://converticon.com/ to convert your picture to an *.ico file. If you want to change the icon on a folder (like I did on the video) I recommend you to check 32 x 32 in the export options and if you want to use it on your site (favicon) choose 16 x 16. Well I hope you like my 30 seconds tutorial! I made it for Forbes Teach Me Fast Contest!

EDIT: Sometimes there's a problem with the site and it can't save your icon. You can also use this site:  http://iconverticons.com/ . It's very easy to use it. Good luck!

Thanks !!! I used imagezicon converter (freeware) but this is much simpler and quicker

Even though this is a nice way to convert an image to .ico, that site only allows .png to be converted to .ico and when you convert a high quality image; the quality of the newly converted .ico is downgraded and becomes very poor quality.

Thank you for posting this, but do you know of a way to make a .ico file from scratch?

oh, and to make from scratch, make a picture using a paint software or something, then upload
