I need some very high res apple logo's. I found a website a couple years ago that had them but I cant seem to find it now. I am really specificaly looking for the red aqua logo but all others will be greatly appriciated. This will be printed about 4 feet wide and tall so any graphics gurus know what I need.

email:NWAMacTech@mac.com or post here,but i imagine them being too big.

All i can offer you in the way of help is that <option shift k> gives you the plain apple logo. I would like to see these colored logos too.

Thank's, thats great and I think it will work perfectly. Did you draw that yourself? If so can you post instructions on how to do that?

Well, I didn't draw the Apple's shape myself, but I did do the shine.

I just created a new text item in Photoshop, then pressed Option-Shift-K, which is a Mac-only keycode for producing the Apple logo.

After that, I did a little magic with gradients, strokes, and inner glows and viola!

How did you do that? I've done that - and just tried it - and all I get is a "?".

Make sure your font is set to Lucida Grande, Charcoal, or Chicago.

Ah yes, thanks! Why does it only work with those fonts? Just some mystery? :)

It probably has something to do with the fact that those fonts at some point have been the operating system's default:

System 1 through 7.5.3 = Chicago
System 7.6 through 9.2.2 = Charcoal
Mac OS X Public Beta - Mac OS X Tiger = Lucida Grande

There you go, a viola is the secret ingredient! That's music to my ears... ;)

It's been quite a long time since I posted the red Apple logo, and my skills have somewhat improved since then. Because of this, I've recreated the logo. Here's the aqua/blue variation:

you can also download logos and such from the pr section at apple.com

http://www.apple.com/pr/products/

or maybe not, i just looked through there. i could have sworn there used to be logos. but in any case, lots of nice high-res images of products.

Some of the logos posted on here look like they come from this site:

http://www.brandsoftheworld.com/search/?action=search&text=apple

Any who, there are loads of choices, and they are all eps files meaning you could scale them up to 8 ft in size and still be razor sharp, if you wanted.

Oh, and use Illustrator for logos and to open these files.

There was always a solid version of the logo, for wherever color printing wouldn't work.

There has always been a solid color version of the logo. The solid and glossy logos didn't "replace" anything - the rainbow logo simply fell out of favor.

The iMac G3 started glossy logos, and there have been flat solid logos before and after that.

Does anyone on here know any good tutorials for creating the apple aqua look? I've looked online, but I can't seem to find anything of good quality

download this asl file http://www.photoshop-school.org/xmedia/tut/aqua/styles.asl

In photoshop go to the panel 'STYLE' and load the dowloaded file (styles.asl)

add the style to a shape located on a blank layer...

Hope it is clear anouth ;)

Someone on eBay actually sold an internal Apple manual on the logo and its history and use, and it was very recent as it included all the "flavor" color logos.

Needless to say, the manual went for big $$$...

Here's a glossy Apple logo that I made (I call the color frost)
It really high-res, for those who need that.

If you need other colors, just let me know.
