What is a Favicon? - Calibre9



What is a favicon?

A favicon is a tiny 16×16 pixel image which represents your site. It appears in the browser tab for all pages on your site, and in browser bookmarks when people save your site. Most favicons are some version of the brand or website’s logo. Favicons are useful for branding and recognition as well as increasing the perceived trustworthiness of your site.

What is the standard size and file format for a favicon?

Web favicons are 16×16 images that are stored in the .ico format. Many CMSs will recommend that you upload a higher quality image (such as 512×512 in WordPress) that is then converted to a 16×16 image.

How can I create a favicon for my website?

Most favicons are created using the site’s logo to increase brand cohesion and recognition. Some logos may need to be modified to properly fit in the small square format whilst remaining recognisable.
