Creating a pic from an .ico-file

How do I do this with Axialis Iconworkshop ? I've tried it and can't get it to look nice. The pic always gets either a backgroundcolor or a white line around itself. What am I doing wrong ?

Can you post the pic here, or a link to it? I'm not familiar with Axialis Iconworkshop, but, you may want to see if there's a matte feature that lets you choose a color for the transparent edge pixels to blend against. Also, anti-aliasing and/or feathering can help in reducing or eliminating a halo effect.

Well, I am guessing that you want it to look like this:


But I had to convert the .ico to a .gif/.jpg to work on it in the program that I have and use, which is Photoshop. So if you need this to be a .ico then maybe you can convert this .gif (far right) back to a .ico, if it's not necessary then you can just use the .gif on the far right. The three on the left are just showing how it looks against a white, gray and black background, but the one on the far right is a transparent .gif that is ready to use. You can resize it to the size that you want, or I can resize it for you to the size of the one in your link if you'd like.

The one to the right (transparent) looks good. Can you make this in 32x32 for me please ? It doesn't matter what kind of file it is as long as it's compatible with the web in a nice layout

Yeah, here you go ...

Now there's a 2px buffer around this, so if you want it exactly 32x32 I can stretch it 2px vertically and 2px horizontally, just let me know.
