Creating a favicon.ico file with The Gimp

Because Gimp 2.0 doesn’t support the Windows icon format yet, I looked for another way to create a favicon.ico file with Gimp running under Mac OS X.

The Web recommends at least three different conversion tools for this task:

  • ppmtowinicon is said to have problems with transparency
  • xpm2wico is not available as a Fink package
  • png2ico did the trick for me
