New PFRE Logo Designed By Carson Coots

January 14th, 2008

Have you noticed the new little logo in your browser to the left of the photographyforrealestate.net URL? This little logo is called a “favicon” which is short for favorite icon or urlicon. This new little logo is thanks to Carson Coots, Houston area Web Designer, Graphics designer , Internet marketing guy, real estate photographer and all around renaissance man. Carson’s other sites are real estate remix, Builder blue print, and his active rain blog. There are probably others… a web designer can never have too many websites. Anyway, Thanks Carson for the great design! If you ever need design work, Carson is your man.

Jan 15 Update: Reader Markus explained why my favicon wasn’t showing up on IE and Netscape browsers. For the full skinny on how to make favicons and use them see Markus’s site www.faviconr.com. Turns out I had to follow the instructions on this site under “What now” to get the my favicon to show up on IE and Netscape browsers.

  • Nice. It doesn’t appear on my computer under IE7.0, but when I use Firefox, I see it.

  • Jim,
    Thanks for the feedback. I’m not surprised. There are a number things on the blog that don’t work right with IE 6 and IE 7. I’ts probably time I made a statement like David Hobby over at Strobist did that “This blog only works with Firefox”. Everything does appear to work OK with Safari on the Mac.

  • Nice icon. Like Jim, I can’t see with IE, but again, I mostly use FF.
    I have the same problem with an animated icon I made, it works fine with FF but not with IE. If you have FF, you can see it here: http://www.photocaddie.eu
    Animated icons are sometimes distractive, but I thing this example works well (it’s a golfer BTW…).

  • Larry, it does not work with Netscape either but looks great in FF.

  • Today it appears in IE7.0, for some reason.

  • I’m glad to hear you see it in your IE 7. I’ve been working most of the day to make it work on IE but I can’t get IE 7 on my PC to display it. I was just about ready to give up. My IE must have it cached some how. Thanks for the feedback!
