    "The new version is beautiful!"

    April 4, 2014  |   By codySly

    Version: The Logo Creator 6.8.0

    Pros

    This new version is by far the best that Laughingbird has come out with. The new Add-on packages are terrific. I love the Business Card Creator add on set.

    Cons

    No vector output but laughingbird has a trick to this. The website mentions how to get around this.
    Other than that... this software is solid!

    Summary

    Marc is a great guy! Somebody reviewed here and said he never answers. I always get help from him. he's also got a forum and a huge Facebook following. he posts everyday. there's nothing about Laughingbird software that's bad :)

    My humbel opinion

    "The new version is useless."

    March 21, 2014  |   By SheSheFun

    Version: The Logo Creator 6.8.0

    Pros

    Would be great if the new version did not freeze and was not so slow. Past versions were great to sue if you don't want to use Photoshop and just want to design simple things.

    Cons

    New version is horrible. Past versions better.

    Summary

    What I really hate about this software is that the owner, Marc Sylvester NEVER EVER answers customers inquiries or complaints. It's a great software (the older version) as a lite version of Photoshop, basically.
    I use it all the time, but the new version 6.8 is totally useless and I can't access my old version.

    "Extremely limited."

    April 1, 2009  |   By csherman1

    Version: The Logo Creator 5.2

    Pros

    Ease of use.

    Cons

    Can only move selected objects - cannot resize.
    If using imported graphic, can only place and move object - can't resize, or manipulate in any way.
    Very simple!

    Summary

    If you want to use one of the pre-designed templates and just change colors and fonts, this is great. For anything more sophisticated, it's too limited. I was hoping for a simple alternative to Photoshop, which this is, but it's just too basic for my needs.

    "This is garbage"

    September 22, 2004  |   By siles7

    Version: The Logo Creator 3.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I bought the product and loaded it. Since I spent $40, I went to the web site to see if there were any updates and it said that there was a "free" one, very clearly stated. I downlaoded a demo version that made the version I purchased unusable. I left a message and two emails for the "creator" and have not had a reply. By the way, it doesn't work very well either. It crashed pretty regular on 10.3.5. Stay away from this garbage

    "Not a bad little app"

    May 1, 2004  |   By levinedr

    Version: The Logo Creator 3.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    While far from a full-fledge design tool, this is a useful and easy to use app for non-professionals who want to come up with a logo for their own small business. Coming up with your own logo could save your hundreds to several thousand dollars. Yes, I wish it were smoother and faster. Yes I wish MacWare would update it. Yes I wish there were online additional logos. But, it is preety cheap and maybe that should limit my expectations.

    "DO NOT BUY THIS..."

    February 28, 2004  |   By StrikeOut

    Version: The Logo Creator 3.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    It's a trap. It just doesn't work very well. The application looks slick (graphics will do that. Even the box looks attractive. But it just doesn't work very well considering it's a 3.0 release. Worse yet, it's not a Cocoa app. It's written in Director and is slooooooowwww.

    How about stability? The box it came in is more stable. And more useful. Someone went to a lot of trouble to create a pseudo-application for Macs that looks cool, but creating an app in Director is a shortcut from Cocoa or anything else. It's non-intuitive, buggy (crashes regularly on both my Macs), and not worth this kind of money. You're better off buying a couple of books with a few hundred colorful logos and then use Graphic Converter to "recreate" those logos instead. For the same money you'll have a couple of good books, and a very good graphics application.

    I think there's a market for this kind of thing, though. Hey, I paid for an attractive box, right? You can do the same thing in Photoshop but you need about $700 and talent and time. The whole idea of an application like this is to help you with the talent part at a lower price. Unfortunately, you'll waste your money and still have no talent.

    Logo Creator is $39.95 at CompUSA. I'll let you have my copy at half that price.

    "Arrgh."

    July 18, 2003  |   By bedouin--2008

    Version: The Logo Creator 3.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Beachballs . . . totally non-intuitive GUI design. It further annoys me by placing a Windows-like shortcut to the app on my Desktop. No thanks.

    /me throws in trash.
