Icon help


Recommended Posts

I want to use this image as a Icon.

compass.jpg

So I saved it as an .ico. Then I tried to use it as an icon and a windows pop up says that "compass.ico contains no icons".

I am confused. Can someone help?

Paint.NET does not support creation of icon files.

Did you use an icon filetype plugin to make the image into an icon file?

Yes I did. I followed your link and found out that I can open icon files in Paint.NET, but I am unable to create an icon file from scratch.

Thank you. :idea: What if I open an existing .ico file and delete everything within it, replacing it with the above image and save that? Will that work?

:arrow: Now I am even more confused. I looked in a folder on my computer and came across some icons that I created a while back using Paint.NET (:?:) ...from sratch.
