Tons of info doing a search:
https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=how+to+make+a+favicon

But it depends on what graphics software you use, and if it can save in the correct format, to get it to work in all browsers you need to save in .ico format, see here for a table of what's supported in different browsers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon

Probably the best way is to use a website to convert it for you, lots can be found in the Google search above.

Now the favicons comes in many different sizes, depending on the platform they are viewed on.
