I now have a Favicon!!!!
Also known as I now have oneofthosefunnylittlepicturesthatgoesupinthebrowsertabswiththenameofmywebpage!
I can't tell you how excited this makes me and I have no idea why!
So exciting. Here is is:
Even more impressive... it's a "multi-resolution favicon"!
Now I know you must be really impressed.
If it's a "multi-resolution favicon" that means if there's just a tiny bit of space it will show up tiny, but with a little more space it will look bigger. And it will look good at different sizes- all the way from small to teensy tiny.
You should see it in the tab at the top of my blog! Let me know if it works! I also put it on my website, so you should see it on the tab at the top of my website too: http://www.anikmcgrory.com
First I tried to make it myself. I used these webpages to figure it out:
I discovered it was very difficult to make a tiny-little-image-so-small-you-can-barely-see-it look good. I spent several hours (days?) working on it and then gave up and went here:
I downloaded SimplyIcon and then dragged and dropped, and voila: instant magic multi-resolution favicon!
Further instructions for making your own multi-resolution favicon (yes, I like saying that) by hand on photoshop can be found here:
I gave up after following the directions on how to use SimplyIcon.
OK... Now I want to see all those multi-resolution favicons everyone's making after reading this!!! Favicon away! I do think it should be a verb now.
