  • Super-easy to use, open an existing image (square images work best), preview it, save as a favicon file
  • Creates a combined 32x32px (as used by HiDPI/Retina displays) + 16x16px ico file
  • Creates favicons from PNG, JPG and GIF images
  • Supports alpha transparency for shaped favicons
  • Uses ImageMagick behind the scenes for all image manipulation


Faviconator has been tested on and packaged for Ubuntu 16.04. To install Faviconator, add the PPA to your system with the following terminal command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:corenominal/faviconator

Followed by:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install faviconator

Once installed, you should be able to find a launcher for the application in your dash, just search for “favicon”.
