    'Sup Y'all (sorry for the Bad Boy talk this is my first post here and I just want to seem down with the kids)... Straight to the chase... I've searched the forums and cant see any recommendations on Free Mac Logo Creation software... I'm trying to design a Logo for my website and am after x2 bits of information.

    1. Free software that I can create a basic logo in (that's easy to use preferably)
    PS Mac Software that is
    &

    2. (a bit off topic) A source of free unlicensed imagery (any websites out there?) that I can use on my website without breaking any laws.

    Any Help would be great thanks!
    :D

    You're really not going to find software dedicated to making logos. Try using Seashore. It uses the same filetypes as The GIMP, so you can add the same palettes and brushes and whatnot.

    Here's one of mine. It's cake.

    You might want to check out DrawIt. It's just a vector drawing app that has a "lite" version (I would imagine you could do some simple stuff with it).

    You could try GIMP: http://www.gimp.org/macintosh/

    It is free, and could be used to create a logo. You will need to install X11 for Mac for it to work though. You can install it off your Leopard disc if you haven't already.

    Well this won't count as software but follow this link and read it carefully. ;)

    Good luck…

    Edit:
    Apparently the mods didn't like my quote, so I'll try again:

    You could hire a graphic designer and get the job done professionally.
    You may even be surprised how small a fee you get charged. :D

    Inkscape is also a SVG (vector editor). Fairly simple.
    GIMP, or SeaShore are good full fledge options.

    For images, you can try www.openclipart.org
    Most files are available in SVG format.
    Otherwise search google for "Creative Commons" and art/images

    And apparently they didn't like mine either, which said something along the lines of "hey, im a graphic designer, i can do it for you for a small fee!"

    hahaha

    Thanks for all your help!

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for the Help... I went with DrawIT in the end... (spent ages with the Missus on something that has come out very simple)...

    Very Helpful indeed all of you!

    Gav :)
