I have been given the responsibility of creating icons for our programs. Does anybody out there have experience with .ico files? This is my situation:

I photographed a scroll with a digital camera and saved the image as a .tif file (the only option with the camera software other than .kpg). I downloaded Microangelo from the web. The only files you can open with Microangelo are .gif and .ico. So I opened my .tif file in Paint Shop Pro and saved it as a .gif file. Opened it in Microangelo, saved it as an .ico file. Guess what?! The icon looked fine until I tried to put it on my desktop. Then, voila! It looked like crap. (the colors were all out of whack and washed out)

So what gives? Any suggestions how I can take a .tif file and turn it into an .ico file without going through all this hoopla? Any ideas why the colors got all messed up?

Is Microangelo not the best choice? Help!!!! I've got to get this icon done by June 8th!! Yikes!
