 I'm trying to add site icon in Cutomizer according to this manual:

 - I go to Administration Screen > Appearance > Customize
 - I click Site Identify
 - then I click Select Image at Site Icon sectiona and select my
 favicon.ico file.

 On step when WP asks me to crop the image, I got error "Image could not be

 I debugged and found that this is because system (neither GD nor
 ImageMagick) cannot operate with .ico (image/x-icon mimetype) files.

 It seems not very logical that I can't upload ready for use favicon.ico
 with the tool that is created for this. It seems as bug for me.

 Why just not use uploded .ico file if system cannot operate it?
