Hi all,
I am trying to branding my product.
I wanna set a ICO for the Program Launcher. It said that "Use a single ICO file containing 7 images".
I planned to used a tool for creating ICO file from 7 images. But I don't know the format of these 7 images:
1. Are they in .png format?
2. What size of them?
3. Naming of these images are required?
Thanks so much,

I use the Iconify plugin for Gimp.

It takes your source image and creates a new file with multiple layers which are ordered and sized in a specific way.

Then you just export with the filename ending in .ico.

You'll be prompted to select which layers/image sizes and resolutions to include in the final .ico file.

Bit-depth is extremely important; Eclipse and Tycho both complain if you get it wrong.

There's a good tutorial here:
Good Luck.
