    Highly depends on what you are trying to achieve. If you want to create the logo as it has to be (vector), you should go with Illustrator. But on the other hand, if it is for a small web project that is not so important, and you don't expect it to become really famous (thus you won't need to advertise in high resolution or to give it journalists), and you are good with Photoshop, go with it.

    I'd go for Illustrator or Gimp. These two are really popular

    With newer versions, both Illustrator and CorelDraw support automatic vector-tracing of an image which helps me make a logo much faster than if I did have to draw vectors manually. I am not sure if the free vector graphics software support tracing.

    Best logos are made using vector graphics so that when they are re-scaled the visual quality remains high.
    Because of this, Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw are the two of my best choices, though in many cases I do import the vector logo (from a .EPS file) into Photoshop and add layer styles if needed (drop shadow, bewel, transparency). Photoshop treats the imported layer as a smart object so it remains crisp and looks nice no matter how much I scale it.

    Adobe Illustrator is typically used for creating logos, although it might be a little tough to learn if you have no experience with it

    I would say Illustrator is my first choice. It IS possible in PS but I'm already so used to the Illustrator tools...

    Yes, the same for me. Usually, I just use one Illustrator tutorial of a huge set published online (here, for example - https://www.format.com/magazine/resources/design/adobe-illustrator-tutorials) either for logo or for something else.

    mainly use Photoshop, simply because I could never learn Illustrator properly, but I think Illustrator is probably better if you take time to learn it

    Since vector images are usually on high demand, hence Adobe Illustrator should be the best bet. You can still do it online, using Canva.

    Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw have the best software.
    Also, if you have an Ipad, you can try out apps like Procreate, Vectornator, Adobe Draw
