    Actualy never used gimp in my life. Photoshop is not good for creating logos. For me best software for logos is Illustrator, for others Corel Draw.

    Photoshop mainly, and if asked, i use Illustrator for vector logo. Anyways, the software doesn`t matter, only the creativity.

    Illustrator is probably the best. You don't really need the most recent update. CS3 and CS4 editions are more than powerful enough for most uses.

    If you are bad designer then pickup PS and start making bad logo and maybe they will sell as horrible logo to turn away stinky colleges.

    Illustrator is mostly the best software because it's easier to create vector logo with it. Most designer using illustrator but you can use photoshop as well to create logos.

    General good designers do not use Softwares to design the logo. They use their creative mind and hands to design the logo.

    But still some greedy people or people who do not want to invest, use Logo Software to design logos.

    Some of Logo Design Softwares are given below, you can:
    http://www.aaa-logo.com/
    http://www.logomaker.com/
    http://www.sothink.com/product/logo-design-software/
    http://logoyes.com/wizard/show/choose_icon.tpl

    If you are looking to create a free logo, u can choose from above.

    Thanks

    I use either GIMP or Paint.Net. The biggest key for me is to have a program that allows me to work with layers. That way I can edit text, clip art, backgrounds, and my own horrible sketching into an image without affecting other parts.

    I have the latest versions of Photoshop and Illustrator and tend to go there for most work. But for logos and also character design I find that CorelDRAW is easier and faster.

    I believe that if you need a logo that would be printed it is best to make it in Illustrator, but if it will be only on web/mobile or business cards you can make it in Photoshop (free alternative are gimp for photoshop and inkscape for illustrator)
