I can make a desktop shortcut icon or browser favicon.ico from a .jpg, but I can't seem to get the background pixels to be transparent. How do I make the Desktop Icon Transparent?
Can someone recommend the "Best" FREE icon editor? What's your favorite?
I use Photoshop and some of the pixels have no color, just transparent background. But I can't save to .ico from PS. I save to .jpg for example. I've tried Icon Constructor, but can't seem to make those non-color pixels transparent.
How, for example, do I use Icon Constructor to make the non-color pixels transparent?
Here are some I tried
