Convert Image JPG to ICO Online [Favicon File]

By Sidharth | Ideas

If you are reading this page, look at the left side of your browser’s address bar and you can see a small “B” logo. This is a favicon file of blogote, and it’s not exactly an image ending with JPG extension. In fact, favicon files end with an ICO file extension. Now, what to do if you want to have a favicon for your site?

Design a favicon. You can create a new .ico file using Adobe Photoshop or Gimp tool, if at all you are good at designing stuffs. When you are done with the design, save the file as .ico and upload it on the server.

But I am assuming you are not interested in designing a favicon, and you are looking for an easy way out, right? Pick a JPG image you like from the web or from your saved albums to create your own ICO file online. That sounds interesting?

Use any photo editing tool and designing tools or a free online tool from Dynamic drive (link below) to convert gif or jpg to ico file format.

Visit Jpg to Ico converter from Dynamic drive and upload your file (.bmp, png, gif animated image, jpeg/jpg) from the computer. Wait for the image to convert into ico file, and once the whole process is complete, download the file. You can now insert the favicon into WordPress blogs using a line of code.
