How to make a logo in Photoshop

If you are wondering how to make a logo in Photoshop, we need to provide an important clarification first. Photoshop was not made to design logos. While Photoshop is certainly about much more than just photos, and it offers a huge array of tools for designers and illustrators, there’s a reason it isn’t usually used to create logos.

Usually you want to create a logo that can be scaled up and down without losing quality. For this, designers use vector-based design software, such as Adobe’s Illustrator. Photoshop’s pixel base is less suitable for logo design, because if you need to enlarge your design at a later stage, you’ll find that its quality deteriorates and becomes ‘pixelated’, although you can vectorize your design in the software.
