  3. After select custom shapes, you can go to option bar that you found on top. In this bar, you can find shapes box and click on it. You will find some icon.

Here is a step by step guide to creating a logo

Give Colors to Your Logo

  1. Write your business name in Photoshop New document.
  2. Set your text size.
  3. Now choose the color for your logo. Make sure, you follow the color combination rules for your logo.
  4. You can also choose multicolor for your logo, it depends on your business.

5.For example, I choose the red color for the logo because blog theme is red and the color is suited for my blog and logo.

The background is necessary for only 5% logo. If you want your logo more creative, you can add the background to your logo, depend on your logo design.

Choose the Right format for your Logo

This is very important part of your logo designing process. Many formats available but two image formats are very popular. First is JPEG and second is PNG Image format. You can use any format for your logo but mostly logo designer tell the PNG format is better than any other image format. I describe these two formats in detail here.

  1. JPEG Format Image: JPEG format is very high quality and big in size. But you cannot save transparent logo with JPEG file format.
  2. PNG Format: Mostly Designer including me recommends saving the logo in PNG Format. Because PNG format is known for the transparent image file. To save your logo in transparent, follow the below guideline
  3. Go to file menu and click New, after that a dialog box open with many functions such as document size, mode, width, height,
  4. .You can see White, Background color, and transparent section. You can just simply tick on transparent and choose your desired document size and click ok.
