Correct File Names

iconifier.net creates all the required Apple Launcher icons using file names that devices expect so you needn't specify the icon locations in your HTML unless you have some special requirements such as different icons for each page or wish to help Android devices find the correct icons.

The expected file names are as follows:

  • apple-touch-icon-144x144.png
  • apple-touch-icon-114x114.png
  • apple-touch-icon-72x72.png
  • apple-touch-icon-57x57.png
  • apple-touch-icon.png

Transparency Preserved

Transparency is preserved so transparent PNG or GIF source files result in transparent PNG Apple Launcher and favicon files.

Higher Resolution Multiple Format Favicon

iconifier.net creates fully valid ICO formatted favicon files with multiple embedded sizes of 16 x 16, 24 x 24, 32 x 32, 48 x 48 and 64 x 64 so that the optimum quality favicon will be displayed whichever web browser is being used.

A higher quality favicon is desirable especially with retina screens and now that many browers including IE9 are taking advantage of these.

Easy One Screen Operation

Upload the source image and click on "Iconify" and repeat as necessary. There's no need to go back to the start to re-run iconifier.net.

Easy Download

You can download the icons individually or all together in one easy ZIP file. The ZIP file includes a folder so that icons aren't strewn across your desktop or elsewhere when the file is expanded.

File Locations

Thanks

I'm very grateful to Chris Jean for sharing his excellent PHP-ICO tool which can now be found on GitHub. PHP-ICO enables favicon files to be created with PHP and the GD library only.

Iconifier RT @shapershopper: @Iconifier thanks for inconifying me
Iconifier RT @DarrenParlett: Another shout out to @iconifier for saving me time on a Friday afternoon generating favicons, cheers. https://t.co/Vo20r
