    ico files

    Are there free/shareware programs that convert jpg files into ico files(to be used as icons for desktop shortcuts)?

    Irfanview will do that: IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

    (See screenshot for a test folder I made with a GIF image that had been saved as an ICO file by Irfanview.)

    You can do it with Paint.NET - Free Software for Digital Photo Editing and the icon/cursor plugin at Evan's Freeware Site.

    I would recommend a specialized tool, aimed specifically at creating icons. IcoFX - The Free Icon Editor is excellent and provides many features and options.

    Thank you very much guys <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>.
    In the meantime I've also found Adsen FavIcon from AdsenSoftware.
    Why do they start popping out only AFTER you start asking <img src=/S/thinks.gif border=0 alt=thinks width=15 height=15>?
