Does the job outstandingly! - Don’t listen to the crazy professionals in here, this program delivers on what it promises andthen some! In my first three hours with this pp, I designed 2 logo’s, and a set of 33 very professional and moden looking buttins and a caption set to use with my eLearning buisiness. I have even sold these designs (excluding logo’s) 7 times on eBay and made my money back for this software several times over! I don’t come from a creative design background at all, so three hours to acheive this with no experience is simply outstanding! The ‘crazy’ people I refer to on these comments are actually the professional designers, rating this low as it’s ‘too basic’ and ‘doesn’t compare to Photoshop’. Really guys? Somthing sold for less than $20 really shouldn’t do the same thing - otherwise Adobe is really ripping you off for PS! lol Somtimes simplicity is the key - if you want big and complex, go to Adobe. If you want quick and simple, look here.
Launched app and got full screen holiday ad - I just opened this app for the first time to learn to use it and got a FULL SCREEN ad from Synium on my MacBook Air. Deleted app and won’t be doing business with this company again. Developers should NEVER be permitted to push ads to uses like this and Apple should not permit it.

So Cool and Amazing!!! - When I was stuck in Windowsland (please do not judge me by my poor past desicions) I would use PhotoImpact for my graphics work. It was an all around good program to use. But then when I came to my senese and bought a Mac I was at a loss for what I could use for making awesome graphics quickly and easily without jumping through flaming hoops. I tried many different apps all to my disappointment. Logoist 2 to the rescue! I cannot begin to tell you how pleased I am with this app. Only yesterday did I really dig in depth with it to make a rather complex header image for my website. To say I was blown away is an understatement! If you are looking for a graphics app that is easy to use, intuitive, and powerful without having to do a bunch of other things first to get what you want, then this is the app for you. Save yourself some time, money, and aggravation and check out Logoist 2 prior to buying anything else first. Or at all! You will not regret it. Well worth 3 Hamiltons. God bless!
Easy to use, yet powerful. - There are some limitations to this app and there are some things that could be improved, but overall this is a useful and efficient tool for anyone looking to create logos or vector type graphics. Myself, I use it to create animation comps for a motion graphics artist. It allows you to import PNG files of the web, of which I use plenty. The PNG then becomes its own layer to allow you the flexibility to resize and distort as needed. It’s no replacement for photoshop or illustrator, but this isn’t targeted to that type of user. If you are looking for an easy to use tool that can help you get your message across then this will work wonders for you. Worth the price…and it’s fun to use too.
ok if you use thier examples - If you like thier examples and want to use virtually identical ones for your logo then great. You’re probably in good shape. If you want to import your own background, or add colors to specific parts of your artwork, or want to be creative outside of what they already provide you with then good luck. I find this application very limiting. If I were you I would try it for free before you make the mistake I did and buy it first. Play around with it for about 10 minutes and you discover how limited it is.
WORST SUPPORT EVER - Great appllication - similar to what I also once used in Windows (PhotoImpact X3) as far as ease of use. However, this company’s SUPPORT should be renamed to LEAVE-US-ALONE. No one responds or even acknowledges the questions. I submitted 3 “contact support” requests to no avail. And yes, it’s been 2 weeks!
GREAT!!! But…continoulsy having to force the shutdown. - I love this program but after using it for a day it is now continuosly shutting down in the middle of my work. I do love how it’s working and it’s so simple to use.
