    I create my icon, at the size I want and save the .ico file. I am given the options available the .ico file and save. But, when I reopen the file in Gimp or in a webbrowser, it is empty or not recognized.

    Any ideas as to why?

    Hmm... I have this problem myself actually. I never figured out why it does that. I just assumed it was either a compression error or the wrong compression type...

    I think youre right. Cause I have been able to open .ico files (not made by my gimp) perfectly.
