favicon-icon-generator.com is an online paint application that allows you to easily create a custom favicon for your site. Favicons are the tiny images that show up in your browser’s address bar or tab bar.
favicon-icon-generator.com can either convert an image into a bitmap pixel layout which you can then refine, or the site allows you to create a design from scratch using a simple color picker and pixel-by-pixel paint tool.
Once you have something you like, just save the file and upload it to your site. You can also save the image to favicon-icon-generator.com and license it under a Creative Commons option for others to build on.
There are a number of sites out there that allow you to upload and optimize images as favicons and there’s even a free Photoshop/Illustrator plug-in that will export files as favicons. However, given the extremely small size of favicons, 64×64 pixels, Photoshop might seem like overkill.
favicon-icon-generator.com is small tool, but it does what it does well and in a few simple steps just about anyone should be able to create a decent looking favicon image.
