Logo create

which software is best to create graphics design? now I’m using photo shop if any other software is there please post here.

Photoshop and Illustrator are the most common “design” programs. Which program is best depends on what you want to do, though there is a little bit of crossover between the two. There are opensource equivalents out there, but I’ve never used them so I couldn’t recommend one for you.

Photoshop is a raster/bitmap program, good for editing photos. You can always scale down. The only things that scale up well are text and vectors/gradients.

Illustrator is a vector program, and your work can be scaled up/down as needed (except for imported bitmaps). You can use a logo on business cards, then scale it up to use on a 20ft long banner.

Most companies I’ve seen prefer to stick to vectors for their logo because of the versatility.

You can try some opensource stuff, GIMP and Inkscape. There is quark, paintshop pro, Corel (draw) software which is cheaper (i think). There is no BEST graphics design software and depends what you want to do.

Most people will opt for the Adobe package its industry standard. But again it is what you are familiar with and what you become good with. But they are more or less the same, except the buttons, icons, layout and naming properties are moved around a bit.

They pretty much do the same thing.

But for a logo, i would definately create it in a vector form.

If you do it with photoshop make sure it is done in shapes or at a high pixel. It depends what you want to do with it in the end is it for just web, banners etc. For versatility I agree with huit go with vector.

Quark is a desktop publisher, like InDesign. Good if you put together a lot of stuff for print, like brochures or pdfs. I know InDesign has some basic vector tools, not sure if Quark has anything like that, but they are not built as graphics programs.

:slight_smile: Agreed…That’s right its not built as a graphics program, but you still can do it if you wanted to.

Thank you for shearing but I don’t know about how to create 2.0 logo in Photo shop and i don’t know how to use i Illustrator also.
