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.

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 "?".

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

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