    I need to get a logo made and I may as well get the software and do it myself if I am going to go pay to have it done. I will be able to use the software for other things too. I know about Photoshop because we have it at school. Any others and what can I expect to pay? I need a user friendly program because I am not real good with computers.

    Thanks...:)

    i would say that photoshop gives you the most freedom..but you have to create your own ideas

    i used this http://www.aaa-logo.com
    and i made these 2 logos and a business card with it

    for the logo on the business card and the "line" logo i used a generic plant looking thing that comes with the program...for the tree logo i got a tree on google and cropped it and made it black with another editor

    Don't laugh, but I designed my logo using " microsoft kids" Paint It program. It had all the features I needed for my logo. It came out really good, if I do say so myself. I get people all the time asking me for a hat. The one thing about logos: the more simple the better. Look what the nike swoosh did for nike. A kid probably came up with that design.

    Do you really want to buy an expensive program for one logo? After you create your logo will you use it again? Right now I am working a few for various people. If you can wait sometime next week I can help you. I am in the biz, check out "New Logo" posted by shawnhines. I am helping him also. I like to take my time and not bang them out.

    Thanks ... I love looking at logos and things. I use AAA Logo, and can sit for hours and create things. Looking forward to seeing your design.
