How Do I Change a picture to an Icon file

  Tony_B 18:10 06 Mar 2004

I would like to change and image into an icon file. Firstly I can't find out what the file format extension is for an icon file.

If someone can tell me what format to save the image in I will be most grateful.

Irfanview will do that for you.

Not sure but I think they need to be a specific size in pixels.

25 x 20 Pixels is a good starting point for icons.I used this size to modify the icon on the "START" button in XP and in 98se.

Tony_B: An Icon (ico) has to be 32x32 Pixels and at most must be 16 coloures to make a standard icon.
