In this instructable, you will learn to make a cool logo for yourself like the pros in 5 minutes or less! The example I have provided is very basic, but you can get much cooler results if you get more involved. I am using Photoshop CS3, but I'm sure it will work with earlier versions or other programs. Let's get started!

Step 1: Step 1: Getting Started

OK, here we go. Start with a new blank document. I used 500x500, but you can use whatever works for you. This concept is very adaptable.

Go research the actual purpose of logos and get back to me on this tutorial.
I second that.
<p>Agreed. Lots more goes into logo creation than playing with Photoshop. One of the big reasons you need to use vector is to allow the logo to be scalable and not lose quality. Photoshop is a raster (pixels (little squares) ) program and you cannot make a logo any larger than the original size without some big problems. </p>
Indeed. There's a reason companies invest millions of dollars into their corporate identity. Playing with Photoshop like this isn't one of them. Sorry. First hint: 'vector'
<p>Nice article. I read it with pleasure.</p><p>People who don't know how to begin to create logos must read this article</p><p>https://www.logaster.com/blog/how-to-get-a-logo/</p>
<p>Thanks for this. Since I don't have a global company and millions of dollars to invest in a logo, this served the purpose of offering access into Photoshop so that I can fool around myself.</p>
<p>oh so sweet!!</p>
I think it's nice. Just a tutorial on how to make something basic for personal use. I really appreciate it! Totally helped me out thank you!
Lol this is alryte for a simple logo design. But it's not realy advanced , last night a made a ball type logo with chrome bits on it took me 30 mins and that's advanced... and did you say you use VISTA , because if you want to be a real logo designer it is better to have XP because vista slow's your performance right down due to how many processes are running at once ... ( i may make a tutorial in a bit)
Sorry, I guess that my point is being misconstrued. I didn't intend for this to be a replacement for a multi-million dollar identity or a corporate logo, I just meant it to be a nice personal design. Thanks for all the comments!
Vista!!!! *Growls* Get aways!!! Otherwise, pretty simplistic but decent looking effects.<br/><br/>-Punk<br/>
