I need to be able to use a tif or gif as an icon
(and i THINK that it needs to be in an .ico format)

I have paint shop pro right now but I cant find a way to do that particular conversion.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1. Download an editor which supports .ico format (there's a whole section labelled "Icon Editors" at http://www.fileking.com)

2. In Paintshop pro load the tif or gif, select all, then copy

3. In the choosen icon editor to paste.

4. Save as a ".ico" file from the icon editor.

Be aware that there are limits of icon sizes and colors that are more restrictive than GIFs and TIFs.  So a bit of "touch up" editting work may be necessary between steps 3 and 4
