Thanks for the request.

There is a file format plug-in available now for the ico format from Telegraphics.

Can Adobe please make the .ico file format built into Adobe Photoshop? Favicons are very popular and having to manually install the .ico file into each and every system is very tedious. Some computer labs I work at do not even let you install any software at all or grant you access to the Photoshop program's folder as it's running off the server, so Adobe can not simply say drag the file into the plugin's folder. I can do this at home, but not at any of my job locations. To do this I have to manually work off my personal laptop.

Again, please build the .ico file format into photoshop.
Thank you,
Jeff

There seems to be no plug in for the Creative Cloud version of Photoshop for .ico file format creation. Could support be added for this?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled windows apple android.

I have been a subscriber of the Creative Cloud Suite for over a year. I realize I am only one person but imagine I speak for many when I express my frustration for Adobe's limitations on anything other than Apple products. The most recent leading me here today is attempting to create an icon is .ico format, which should be a simple task, considering Adobe's robust capabilities and the simple fact it is the year 2016. I prefer Windows and Androids but constantly run into issues and limitations because I will not use Apple or design for Apple. Seriously? I cannot get certain apps on my Samsung tablet or phone and get emails even from Adobe promoting some new app or feature which I cannot use because I don't have Apple. I really have grown to love your products and utilize many in the CC Suite but by now, I would expect all products to be available cross-platform. If Adobe refuses to adapt to this methodology of choice and liberation, why don't they offer a discount and explain upon membership in big, bold writing, not all products will be available unless you have everything Apple. Why should I or anyone pay for all the features when you clearly have not made them available to everyone? It still amazes me I cannot design or save an icon in such a well-known format. I have tried the 3rd party plugin but cannot get it to work. Please note, however, I would still be writing this if it did work because I should not have to search and trust a 3rd party plugin when I already subscribe to an extensive suite of applications by a leader in the industry. I really hope you work to make all products and their capabilities available to all platforms in the near-future, or at least have the decency to charge less for a "Windows" cc package. This is very disappointing and has been building up over the time I've subscribed. I honestly thought by now, you would have changed this. As I said, I may only be one person but considering there must be thousands like me and future subscribers who will also become discouraged, it will add up to not only a loss of money but market share. Thank you for your time.

THANK YOU!! I am feeling the EXACT same way, and plan on writing something very similar to your comment here.. I have been searching for hours trying o get a solution on saving .ico files on my windows10 PC... NOTHING! And yes, I tried the 3rd party plugin thing, didn't work... So, yeah, they most DEFINITELY should have it built in to the software already!

.ico files are the little logo's on the tab's of the websites you visit. Photoshop CS6 had the option to save as .ico, but tech support just informed me that CC has no such option. As a web developer I don't feel like I should be paying for a service that is costing me time and money to do less than the software did that I only had to pay for once.

I would complain to Adobe about this. Make a video and post it to YouTube. Tell them that you will publically tarnish them if they don't fix this.

I made a comment for you just below. You either have to install the .ico file format plugin in your Photoshop plugins folder or go to a free website and have it convert a .png image for you. 

I wish Adobe would build in support right into the app, they have never had this which is very dumb.

The .ico file format is a Photoshop plugin where you need to install the plugin in your app folder on the Mac or PC. Once installed it will be an option under save as. It has to be saved at specific dimensions. Here is a link to instructions:

You can also use a free website where you drag and drop a transparent PNG image into a website box and have it generate the .ico file for you to use on your website. This site is found here: https://www.convertico.com/

The information on the above post is from 2011.  I am using the latest version of Photoshop CC.   I added the ICO file as instructed.  The "Save As" option list does not list .ico

Than use the free website to drag and drop files that I provided you, that works. I am not a tech nor do I work for Adobe. Why don't you call adobe to help you? Please stop emailing me.

Making icons is a fun and interesting idea, and using online file converters aren't necessarily the best choice. Ive got no idea how hard it is to save a file as a .ico file or how hard it is to make that process work however having that ability to be part of the total package would be beneficial to anybody whos looking to make an icon for a windows 10 computer.
