create a logo
Hello,
I would like to reproduce this logo. Does anybody know how I can do a similar logo, font, or even which program has been used for it? I hope it was done with Gimp.

logo
thanks.

RE: create a logo
The image meta data says "ACD Systems Digital Imaging" but it looks like it's a photo taken with a bad camera or a cell phone, so, not Gimp in any case.

This said, if I had to duplicate this, with Gimp it would be rather easy, even if vector based tools such as Inkscape could be slightly more suited.

RE: create a logo
I took it with my camera from a sheet! And I used acdsee to reduce its size! OK. How can I do it with Gimp? I have no idea how to do the orange part around the 'S'.
thanks

RE: create a logo
Do you want to reproduce this exact shape, or do you want to be able to do something similar with other letters/fonts?

at the moment the exact shape (similar font) and the same "circle" around it. Later, I would like to play with it....

Learn to use the "Paths" (Path) tool and draw a path over the current picture (don't hesitate to zoom in). Once done you can scale the path at will, then you can use "Select/From path" and bucket-fl the selection:
[attachment=772]

(drawing above done in all of 3 minutes, so some irregularities in the path can be ironed out with a bit more time/care)

RE: create a logo
Sorry, I didn't undertand. Are you saying to use "path" to draw the "S"? I thought it was supposed to type a letter "S" as text and then work with it...

RE: create a logo
If you want this exact shape, you will likely never find a font where the "S" has a bulge in the lower loop. So redoing the picture with paths is the best way.

If you want to do something similar, you can of course pick the font and character you want. But a font is little more than a collection of paths and if you want to alter the character to better fit your need (like adding the bulge mentioned above), it is better to alter its "path" form (you can obtain it using the "Path from text" button) than in its bitmap form. In bitmap form, the pointy parts won't be easy to obtain and won't remain pointy if they are scaled.
