i plan on using photoshop to create the ".ico" file for my projector..
can i just create a regular gif or jpeg image in photoshop and just change the file extension to ".ico"?

also, what are the traditional dimensions for an ".ico" image?

ICO files can contain JPEG images (under Vista) but they are not just plain image files. IcoFX (http://icofx.ro/) is a really nice icon editor that you can import a high quality image into to create your ICO file, and it's FREE.
