It depends on what you are looking to do.

And actually, Photoshop is not really the right program for designing a logo, Illustrator is (assuming that photography is not involved). And it’s a bear of a program if you don’t know it, plus it’s expensive.

What I would suggest is to look at what’s available at istockphoto.com. Maybe you can buy something already designed, and add some nice text to it??

inkscape is the equivalent of adobe illustrator and I think you can download it for free.

GIMP is a watered down version of adobe photoshop, it is also free.


Vectors (inkscape/illustrator) are great for logos, or any graphic design that you want to possibly re-size without degrading or pixelating.

hope that helps!

I don’t have any great advice. I use Publisher, and it is great! Super user friendly. I was able to purchase it for some freelance graphic design work I do, but I also have it on my work computer. I think it is definitely worth the investment.
