Why are we directing people to unsafe, ad and malware infested online converter websites?
Download gimp and follow a youtube tutorial on how to create .ico files.

To Adobe: Shame on you for charging a fortune and not offering the ability to export the basic .ico image type. How can you call yourself an industry leader without basic image creation support.

I have used this plug-in in the past, but can't find where to install it in the latest version of photoshop cc 2017. The directions say to put it in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop \Plug-Ins\File Formats, but that folder doesn't exist there. As many people use this file format, I can't believe that Adobe hasn't already made it a standard feature! Ticks me off to have to use a different program.

If you're doing this for a website, there is now a lot more to modern favicons than just a .ico file. I highly recommend using http://realfavicongenerator.net/
