A favicon (favorite icon) is a small icon that will appear in your website's browser tab. Adding a favicon helps to brand your website and makes it easy to identify for customers with multiple tabs open. The favicon is often your logo and should be 16x16 pixels. This article will explain how to add and change your favicon.

  1. Click the Settings tab from the side navigation menu to the left.

    • My images tab - choose from your existing gallery or image collection.
