How do I save ico in Photoshop CC

I have recently updated to Photoshop CC and can no longer save files to ico format. In CS6 I had a plugin from this website: http://www.telegraphics.com.au/sw/ but they don't have anything for CC listed yet. I tried to drag that plugin into the CC plugin folder and it didn't seem to change anything, restarted Photoshop and the machine as well.

Does anyone know if there is a new plugin out there. I used google and couldn't find anything, maybe I'm searching for the wrong words. Any help on this would be appreciated, I need to make a little more than 300 icons this month for my companies product and don't want to have to install CS6 back on the machine.

Telegraphics' ico plugin for Mac cs5/cs6 works for cc too, just drop it in Photoshop's Plug-ins folder.

I can confirm this does work on CC for Mac OS X. Make sure you create as a new RGB color mode and not CMYK.

Thanks for the help on this, too bad for me that at my work I have to work on a PC. I have a Mac at home and ended up taking the file home to save to the ico format because it was faster and easier. Lucky for me, my work doesn't mind me going home to work every once in a while.

Please tell me how your Mac -- the Mac machine itself -- makes it easier to export an ico file?

I got it to work on my PC as well. Make sure you get the correct version - 32 or 64 bit. At first I didn't think it worked and then I realized my file was cmyk--changed it to rgb as others here suggested and voila! For Windows 8 the 64 bit path is: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014\Required\Plug-Ins\File Formats.

ASENT266 solved something that has plagued me repeatedly!

Why does the plugin not show in the Save As... dialog?

Becuase the color space was not set to RGB. Doh!

Thanks, ASENT266!

^^ 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

(Will not show up in Save As.. Dialogue if CMYK mode is enabled!!!!!!!! I thought plugin was broken! Doh!)

I found that installing the 32 and 64 versions of the plugin solved this issue for me.

just make your file as 16x16 or 32x32 and save for the web as your-image.ico or favicon.ico

I do not see an option for .ico format in the Save for Web (Legacy) or as any available format in the Save As or Export options (Adobe CC 2020).

Photoshop never supported .ico files.  You need a 3rd party plugin or use an online service.

Is it possible to create the "File Formats" folder in the plug-ins folder and get the .ico expert to work? I have tried with Adobe Photoshop Mac 2020 without success. Any advice?

What happens when you use the plugin you have? I need to create a favicon for a website.

you can download the plug-ins called Telegraphics. I have Photoshop cc 2014 installed on windows 7 64 bit  so i download from the website Windows (64 bit)

After you download the plug-ins ( in the archive is ICOFormat64 ) you have to copy to the file File Formats, in my case is C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014\Required\Plug-Ins\File Formats.

Have fun !

I have installed as you stated, but, I cannot use it. I have also checked the About Plugins and it is there, but when I try to save the files and choose the format there is no .ico option..

Any help?
