How to create a favicon for website

Here I will outline the steps to create a favicon icon. I am using debian lenny distribution on Kurobox.

Step1: Convert the JPEG image into PNG

$ convert DSC04518.JPG  -resize 32x32 favicon.png
Step2: Convert the favicon using icotool
$ icotool -c -o favicon.ico favicon.png
$ icotool-bash: icotool: command not found
$ su           Password: 
# apt-get install icoutils
$ icotool -c -o favicon.ico favicon.png 
$ ls -alrt favicon.*
