The Logo Creator

CNET Editors' review

This program's title speaks volumes about its purpose: The Logo Creator includes many templates for developing logos or modifying existing ones. However, the tool's time-consuming download and complicated functionality are hard to slog through.

First, the big 34MB installation takes a while to load, since it includes an enormous amount of PNG and JPEG files. Then you have to set aside more time to actually launch the program. In our tests, we managed to do that only after one hour of desperate attempts. However, designing logo has been made easier thanks to the "element setter".

Fortunately, your troubles won't all be for naught--the highly varied and customizable features can help you build a unique logo. Then, you can save the log as a template for re-use. However, the program is still too simple for professional logo makers, not to mention entirely too frustrating for those who wish to generate a logo quickly and easily.

    "Overpriced hobbyist software"

    April 9, 2014  |   By cnet38

    Version: The Logo Creator 6.8

    Pros

    The free version is fine for a quick, one-time/throwaway logo creation.

    Cons

    (1) No published documentation or clear explanation of how things work.
    (2) The look and feel of the app are childish.
    (3) Version 6 (the current) won't process version 4 files. So, if you spend a lot of time working up a set of logos, there's a reasonable chance you won't be able to change those logos in the future...this is an immediate disqualifier for any serious user.
    (4) This guy seems to be more interested in selling you more stuff than in getting this program to work right.

    Summary

    Not for the serious user--I uninstalled after 30 minutes.

    Updated on Apr 9, 2014

    Correction: V6 won't handle V5 files.
    Addition: V6 doesn't show as installed capability in either "Programs and Features" or using Revo Uninstaller.

    March 1, 2014  |   By Marc Sylvester

    Version: The Logo Creator 6.8

    Pros

    The new version of The Logo Creator is ready for you to download. It contains a ton of new features (you can now scale the image's height and width separately!

    There's a bunch of awesome templates and elements to use.
    You can create page headers, blog images - watermarks for your youtube videos! SO much to do with the software. It's awesome

    Cons

    No EPS or Vector output (but there are workarounds for this)
