I recently installed Amiga bmp to ico converter software that can convert bitmap images, the reason was that I made big mistake while converting bitmap images to icons, first I opened image files in ms paint and simply used save as to make the bitmap image, Then I installed the converter software, the mistake was that I found that most of bmp images that I prepared almost empty, how can I best prepare the bitmap image to be converted to icon?

Hi James D Costanza,

Look, I will correct you with the knowledge that your .BMP files are nearly broke or is empty, the problem is, when you're changing a .BMP into .ICO, the image will become an ICON, now ICONS are small images that represent something like website icon, icon for your organization, etc. You will always face the consequences that every time you will save a picture into an .ICO forat, the image will be 24×24 dimension, even if with regards into converting. You can not do anything about it

An ICO file or simply ICO (*.ico) is an image file format used in Microsoft Windows for icons. This file format was introduced in 1985 with Windows 1. The ICO file format is used to store files, folders, and programs and is very similar to the CUR file format (*.cur) which, on the other hand, is used for mouse cursors or mouse pointers.

Their only difference is the identification byte in the header. If you have several BMP images (*.bmp) that you wish to convert to the ICO format, here’s how you do it with Adobe Photoshop. First, download the ICO plug-in for Photoshop.

Once downloaded, unpack the ZIP file and copy the “ICOFormat.8bi” file to the “File Formats” folder inside the plug-ins folder of Photoshop typically in “C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Plug-Ins\File Formats”. Next, launch Photoshop then open your BMP file. Once the file is loaded, click “File” then “Save As” or simply press CTRL + SHIFT + S on your keyboard.

In the “Save As” dialog, select “ICO (Windows Icon) (*.ICO)” in “Format” dropdown menu then click “Save”. And that’s it.
