    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.

    WOW!

    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? :)

    Fonts contain the characters chosen by the font designer. The fonts created by and used by Apple have the characters they wanted/needed.

    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

    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:

    though the original rainbow logo, didnt have a smooth gradient, nor did it have all those colors.

    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.
