    I'm doing this logo for a Church camp; Photoshop is fun Wink My only concern is the "Shine" text...do you find it hard to read with the glowing around it? Or is it nifty?

    Print it out in greyscale and squint your eyes.  Can you read it?  That'll help you tell whether you need more contrast for readability.

    Maybe you could put the glow behind the "SHINE."

    I printed it out in grayscale, squinted, and saw "Shine" just fine. I didn't know about this trick Smiley Thanks for pointing it out. I also moved the aura behind the text, which looked funny. So I tried a semi-opaque mask from the front, looked funny. The way it is now gives the effect that the text is glowing..which is kinda what I want...

    Hmm...I dunno. I haven't really put this much effort into a photoshop project for sometime now Smiley Takes me back to old times!

    I think that if you could burn the dark edges a little more, it'd be easier to read.  Is the PSD big?  Could you email it to me and let me take a crack at it to show you what I mean?

    That would have sucked had I spelled it "Correctly" Smiley Thanks for the concern though.

    Looks better.  Could you remove your annoying watermark?  It's really hard to evaluate the logo with that there.  At least knock down the transparency a few notches.

    What's the target medium?  Print?  Web only?

    Edit:  Where's Jamie?  Filming another 9Patrol?

    I added some bambo Smiley Got a little crazy. I really like the burn on there, you were right, makes it a dozen times better!

    Dang, Jamie...that's pretty sweet for being done that quickly. I've probably been dabblin around in photoshop for about 2 hours now Smiley Experimenting here and there.

    I like mine too though Smiley

    yours is great! -  for invites emails webpages tshirts etc.

    i think everyone was saying a "logo" needs to be faxable - and vector foremost - then cool afterward

    You're correct. I'm an idiot for saying "logo" Smiley This is going to be a bookcover, for a studyguide thing that the camp is doing.

    I'd change the SHINE to lowercase.  I think given the rays coming off of it, the uppercase is unnecessary.

    I think you need to add some pictures of some Camp Delta pictures....

    God will forgive you, he does these terrorist.
