    Logo Creation

    Wish to create logo for business and have not used Publisher previously. Can Publisher be used to create a logo or would I need PhotoDraw for that purpose? (currently, we have neither program and are trying to determine most cost-effective way to create logo and marketing material for our business). Thanks for any help!

    Re: Logo Creation

    Publisher has a uninspired built in logos as well as a logo creation wizard. You'll find that using the Personal Information command under the insert menu.
    I have created a lot of logos or custom clipart using existing clipart and the draw toolbar. The design gallery designs can also be cropped, modified in unending ways. I prefer creating something from the draw toolbar and then adding wordart. once you have your images where you want them the whole thing can be lassoed and a puzzlepiece will appear. Click it to lock everything in place so that it can be moved as a complete object. I don't use Photodraw much don't have enough experience to comment on it.
    Good Luck!

    Re: Logo Creation

    Thank you for getting back to me so quickly! Had ordered a trial disk containing both PhotoDraw and Publisher from MS and, as it just arrived, had loaded PhotoDraw and was playing around in it to design our logo. Of course, it is not easy to get proficient fast!! Will try your suggestions re. Publisher and see if we can get the effect we're after that way. If so, it will save $$ when it's time to order a full version if we only have to go with Publisher.

    Appreciate your advice!
