Can I Make .ico Files with Paint.Net for Favicons?

Recommended Posts


I want to make a "favicon" for my web site, and was wondering if Paint.Net does anything along that line, such as converting an image to .ico format.

If so, is there a tutorial that explains how to do this?

Thank you.


PS: For anyone reading this who may not be familiar with a Favicon...Favicon stands for Favorites Icon. If you look in your Bookmarks or Favorites section of your web browser, you will see a customized icon next to the listing for a site. That's a Favicon.

Yes, you can. You'll have to download a plugin though. Here's a link:



You have to place the .dll file in:

C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\FileTypes
