The Adobe Photoshop does not by default let you save a .png or .jpg file as .ico. To create a favicon you need to save an image file in favicon.ico and place the favicon.ico file in the root directory of your website.


To create .ico files in Photoshop you will first need to download the Photoshop plugin ICO (Windows Icon) Format. If you are using Windows 32bit download the second Windows (32 bit) ICO for favicon, PNG, (Vista/W7) icons.


Place the ICOFormat.8bi in   C:\....\Program Files\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Photoshop\Plug-ins\File Formats.


Now you will be able to save a .png file as a favicon.ico.
