GenFavIcon Another Fav Icon Generator


The internet can never have enough Fav icon generators. Introducing GenFavIcon. As you might of guessed it, GenFavIcon is a Favorites icon generator. Fav icons are those images that come in 16×16, 32×32, 48×48, 64×64, 128×128 in size that represent a website. The unofficial standard for fav icons is 16X16. If you have ever seen a 128X128 fav icon, let me know. At any rate, GenFavIcon makes creating an icon for your site a three step process.

The first step involves directly linking to a an image or you can click on the BROWSE button and upload an image from your machine. The only file formats supported right now are.jpeg, .gif, and .png If you choose to upload an image from your local machine, make sure it is under 4 megs in size or it won’t be processed.


After uploading the image, the live preview square displays your image with an already predetermined cropping box. After you decide which part of the image you would like to crop, make sure you click on the drop down box and select the size you want to use for your icon.


After you click the Capture and Preview button, your favicon will be displayed in the Step 3 box along with two links. One link points to the actual .ico file and the other link points to the image. If you plan on using the icon you created, on your site, download the .ico file and upload that to your root directory.

Step 3

Thats about all there is to it.
