In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a favicon in Dreamweaver CS4. You should see my favicon at the top of this page in the browser bar.

Favicons are a nice thing to include with your website. If you have a symbol or graphic that you use as a part of your logo, or something that symbolizes your website you can use it as a favicon. A favicon is displayed on the tabs of your browser for a particular website. It is also displayed in the favorites and on the desktop if you make a shortcut there. It is not mandatory or necessary, but it is a nice touch and helps to brand your website better. Remember that you must create a 16px by 16px image and then convert it to an icon before you can use it as a favicon.

Convert your images at:

<link rel="icon" href="images/starfavicon.ico" />
