what if you could save as .ico and .icl and .cur file with photoshop with advanced option like saving for web..... and have posiblity to save several version 32 bit 48x48.... and better brush and pattern gradiant manager
I am little confused with the favicon.ico file format. There seems to be some Photoshop Plug-Ins and others say a PNG and renaming the .png into .ico is totally enough. Can one of the developers be more specific? I need to create a favicon.ico file for my website in several sizes.
I found this website to create a favicon.ico image format.
My question is as follows:
1.) Does the .ico file format store/include several images of different sizes (such as 16x16,32x32 and 64x64) in one file. Therefore, three different images in different sizes in one file?
2.) As far as I can see on the favicon maker website under advanced settings ... Is there any text information stored within this favicon.ico file such as website url, website title, background color, rss feed url, pixel sizes?
3.) Is there a way to create a favicon.ico file format in Photohop CC?
4.) Can I use an SVG file (no more need to create different screen sizes) ... what are the "perfect SVG settings" to create a standard favicon.ico then?
Please refer to the below link that might help you:
The thread is more or less about the topic, how to get an old Plug-In working ... complicated ... Adobe Muse CC only accepts png, jpg and gif image files only as far as I have noticed ... but no .ICO file.
AFAIK, saving an .ico file contains just the one size. You have to size your icon correctly, or the .ico format will not appear in the formats list. The link in post #1 has links to the .ico plugin. I can't answer your SVG question.
I tried every suggestion I found here and elsewhere and nothing worked. The Telegraphics plugin doesn't work with the most recent version of Photoshop CC, at least for me. So I saved the file as a .png and went looking on the Mac app store. Found a 99 cent plug in called Faviconer, and within seconds, I can make a .ico file out of any jpeg or png or whatever file I have. Shouldn't be so hard to get one out of Photoshop. Why this isn't built in is a mystery to me. But Faviconer is very simple, elegant, and does just what I need it to do.
Coming from cs6....to cc 17 , i had a ico file from the net that i was able to drag into the plugin folder in cs6 and i could save as ico...
Tried this for CC 17 64bit with the 64 bit ico file ICOFormat64 drag into the path folder C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2017\Plug-ins
And once i open PS and try to save as, i do NOT see the ico option.
Is this supported in cc17? Is the file path wrong for the file?

How do I save ico in Photoshop CC
Here is the answer...you have to CREATE THE FOLDER on the 64bit CC 2017 then it works.
^^ THIS ^^ Totally worked for me also!
Make sure you put the file in: Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 > Plug-ins > File Formats (be sure to create that folder)
Then make sure in Photoshop:
Image > Mode > RGB
I use Photoshop CC to create my graphic for my favicon and export a 250x250 png file. I changed the file name to favicon.ico and uploaded it to my website server with Dreamweaver CC and it works fine. I have done this on more than a dozen websites I manage and it has worked on all of them. Maybe it is too simple. I used the ico add-in in previous versions of Photoshop to directly export, but this method works easier with CC.
I just save as filename.ico and CC is so smart that understands
