Favicon Blogger - for Rookies

Monday


howto







































this is so simple & easy, 
I definitely recommend this for anyone with their own custom domain/blog





So, what is a Favicon? It's that little icon on the tab i.e. my little grey S next to my blog name. It was surprisingly easy and I love the difference it makes to my blog!




I used powerpoint to create the image I wanted































Choosing the font I liked, I chose to do a simple S and saved it through ppt. I made it size 110 for the font and made the size of the picture as small as I could to make sure the 'S' would be big in the saved image.

I saved it as a PNG to ensure the background was transparent

Now blogger makes this so easy! - You just add your image to the favicon icon you can find in your layout option - the only thing you need to ensure is that the image is square - I used www.picmonkey.com to do that

I just went to the resize option and chose the same dimension size for each - I think in this case it was 340x 340. I just chose whatever one of the current sizes was and rounded it up to the nearest 10.


So, I created the Favicon but it didn't work for me at first but then I found this and it fixed it up:
