After uploading pictures that appeared on blog posts, this will customize the image again the standard size of a Favicon was 16x16 but in this tip blog with Blogger Favicon best is 32 x32 pixels can be good appearing.
Just click on the bottom corner of the image and push the mouse up or scaled down images to increase image resize only about 32 x32 (maybe a small bit of no greater than the absolute accuracy), based on indicators show-off time you increase the size of the image. (See Figure 1 illustrates.)
