Any general tips on building and saving icons?

Not all icons need every resource. Consider your audience and add resources appropriately. In addition, not all icons need 32-bit versions. If you’re making an icon for Windows 95, 98, NT or 2000, delete (or just don’t add) the 32-bit resources to the icon grid. Having them will only add unnecessary file size to the icon.

When saving for Windows, ALWAYS leave the .ico file extension at the end of the saved file’s name. This will allow the icon to show up properly on the PC’s desktop.
