    It's called a favicon, check out www.favicon.com for some info on it. I'm using irfanView to convert images into .ico

    Here you can upload an image and it will generate a favicon. http://www.htmlkit.com/services/favicon/

    Sometimes results aren't that good, you can try this and an icon app and choose one.
