    32 or 16

    Hi, i have always used 16px X 16px images for favicons but i have seen a lot of sites lately (google) using 32px X 32px

    What is the correct size to use, are there pros and cons to both sizes, thanks in advance...

    I've always used 16x16, I could be wrong but maybe the 32x32 is used for the apple device fav icons?

    There is a way of putting the different size in to one file I think. I only have use of an old version of Photoshop though, which doesn't have that option
    LiveScript: Putting the "Live" Back into JavaScript
    if live output_as_javascript else output_as_html end if

    I believe it's fine to use 32 x 32 px for a favicon. They can even be 4848 px, or 6464 px. Since they get reduced to 16 x 16, I tend to make them that size, though.

    Those tend to be larger, and I believe they need to be at least 57 x 57 px. Usually a better choice for icons like that is around 114114 px.
