Do you notice that I have change my blog’s theme? Thanks to Nurudin Jauhari, the WordPress Theme designer. I am currently using one of his WordPress theme, Padangan. This theme works perfectly with WordPress 2.5 and version 1.3 is the latest stable version. I decided to change the default favicon for this theme.

It is a small software (less than 2MB) packed with more than 40 effects plus custom filters. With IcoFX, you can easily convert your favorite images to icons and vice versa. It support multiple files using batch processing for importing, exporting and extracting. You have the power to create icon libraries or change icons inside exe files with IcoFX. Lastly, you can use it to create a stand out favicon for your blog or website. Follow the simple steps below: –

  1. Run the IcoFX software.
  2. Open your preferred image to be converted to icon.
  3. Choose your preferred colors and size for the icon. I select True Color + Alpha Channel (32 bits) for colors and 16 x 16 for size.
  4. Once your image is open, you can go ahead to create an icon from your image with a simple click on the OK button.
  5. Save your icon as favicon.ico and upload to your blog or website.
