I think you need to make 16x16 or 32x32 pixels file (I am not sure what size, 32x32 or 16x16, try both :unsure: ). After that you need to find *.ico export plugin for photoshop, you can google for it and find it very easy :)

Yes :

- from 16*16 to 255*74 file, BUT you should use a instead of .ico (Windows proprietary file) a more "universal" file, like PNG, GIF, MNG...

Only very old browsers won't get it correctly (not even sure of this).

A good freeware program for editing icons is IcoFX. The program is for Windows, so you will have to turn to an OS virtualizer if you are running it on a Mac.

You could go to http://www.favicon.cc/. Either convert it or create a new one.
