    When creating my favicon I outsourced through the website You then upload the picture you want and select the create favicon option. Once finished you download the finished product.

    Use favicon.ico to place into your code. Make sure you save in a folder when your main html file is.

    Placed inside the head section
    link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico"
    link rel="icon" type="image/gif" href="animated_favicon1.gif"
