Favicon generator FAQs

  • What is a favicon generator?

    Zyro’s Favicon generator is a free tool that allows you to effortlessly create a custom favicon to use on your website.

    Favicons are icons that represent a site and its content. The files are placed on the website and are then displayed in tabs and favorite lists on browsers, such as Chrome and Mozilla.

    They’re often the logo of the company that runs the site, but they can also be any recognizable image that will make your site memorable to visitors.

    While in the past, you would need a graphic designer to make favicons, anyone can make a favicon in an instant with Zyro’s Favicon generator.

    Our tool comes packed with template shapes and designs to help you get off to a quick start. Create your shortcut icon on your own – no designer help needed.

  • How do I create a favicon?

    There are a number of ways you might decide to create a favicon of your own.

    You might decide to create one from scratch with design software, convert an existing image into a shortcut icon, or take the easy route of using a favicon generator like Zyro offers.

    If you decide to opt for using Zyro’s Favicon generator, the process of creating the favicon image is easy:

    1. Choose a template shape or upload an image

    2. Edit the icon’s background color, layout, and text

    3. Click Download to choose the size and format you want your favicon in

    Your new favicon file will be downloaded onto your computer. It’s ready to be uploaded as a favicon on your Zyro website or to be added to the code of a website elsewhere.

  • What is the best size for a favicon?

    In most cases, a favicon will be displayed in a 16x16 pixel format, so if you’re just making one favicon, this is the size to opt for.

    It is possible for a favicon image to be displayed on a site of up to 32x32 or 64x64 pixels. In this case, the icon should be provided in a larger format to avoid the image becoming distorted.

    WIth Zyro’s Favicon generator, you can choose to download your favicon in 16x16, 32x32, or 64x64 pixel formats.

    Generally speaking, you should display your favicon in the correct format. It could mean uploading multiple favicon files to your website, thus allowing applications to choose the size of your favicon that it needs.

  • How do I make my favicon background transparent?

    With .ico and .png image files, it’s possible to create a transparent favicon.

    If you’re using the Zyro Favicon generator, making your favicon transparent is simple. All you need to do is:

    • Click background color

    • Choose the color you want the icon to be

    • Move the second slider to the left to get full transparency

  • How do I turn a logo into a favicon?

    Do you have a great looking logo that you would like to turn into a favicon?

    If you’re happy with how your favicon will look using this image, you can simply convert the image into a png format in 16x16, 32x32, or 64x64 format.

    But if you need your logo to be reformatted before you can use it as a favicon, or you want your favicon to look slightly different, you can simply upload it to Zyro’s Favicon generator.
