I run a website and I see that a lot of you have some good looking logo's/graphics at the bottom of your pages. I was wondering what program you guys used to create those. Also, how hard are they to create? Could you easily create a logo for a company? Any help would be appreciated.

Oh ya, i should probably throw in something about fantasy baseball. With Phil Nevin getting injured it's only inevitable that Griffey is next followed by Kevin Brown.

Looks like Sheffield beat them to it. ;-)

As to the logos, Zimm has been doing most of them and they look very good. ;-D

As to graphic programs, it doesn't get better than Adobe Photoshop.

There are others out there, like FreeHand, CorelDraw and GIMP (for Linux) and each has some good things but nothing beats Photoshop.

Designing logos? Well, guys who studied arts and stuff charge a lot of $$$ for a "simple" logo. Designing one takes creativity, and will most likely include some typography to include the company's name or first letter thereof. That's much more than putting some pics together with some text and making it look good to extraordinarily.

But, yes, I guess some of us could give it a try.

I make quite a few signatures. I am not too creative though so making a logo from scatch is not my forte*. If you want a logo for your fantasy league LeBer makes some very nice ones. you can shoot him up with a PM or you can reach him on AIM at LeBeR Ownz.

Oh, and I use Jasc Paintshop Pro, not Photoshop. I found Photoshop incredibly hard to use and hard to figure out. Could somebody please tell me though, what makes it so much better than Paintshop?

I've never used Paintshop, but Photoshop seems to be the best, and I've never had any problems with it.

Photoshop simply is the best although the filters also work in Paintshop.

Haven't used Paintshop for a long time, but Photoshop simply had more and better options.

I design websites and graphics so this IS something I can tell you a little about, as opposed to baseball which I know nothing about :-D

Adobe Photoshop has been the design standard for 10+years. Pretty much every print magazine/ad you see was created at least in part using Photoshop.

Adobe Illustrator is also a great design program. It is used more for logos/business cards and such which are not as photo intensive.

If anyone would like me to design something for them, email me at:

mailto:hphp4lf@hotmail.com.

I will be designing my signature this afternoon.

Now, if I can just figure out to upload it here :-?

You can't upload it to this site. You must have your own host. For example, I use Tripod.
