I'm graduating from High School, and I am in charge of designing the representative logo of my classroom. I made this logo, and I want to digitize it, I want to play with the colors and make it more Perfectly-sized.

My computer software is really old, so downloading Photoshop is not an option. Do I have any alternatives?

  • You should post the logo. It's hard to give advice without seeing how complicated it is. Aug 4, 2016 at 13:40

    Does "I want to digitize it" mean you do not have it inside your computer yet? (The current answers and the comment above seem to assume you have.)

  • If you don't have a scanner, you can find a well lit room, lay the logo flat on a table next a window with strong sunlight and take a picture from directly above it. Keep the camera level with the lens directly over the center of the subject to avoid skewing the image.

Depending on how complicated the logo is, you might be able to to get the job done with a simple vector graphics software. Photoshop is not an absolute necessity. There are open source (and free) alternatives. Have a look at Gimp and Inkscape.


Agreed with Raiyan! Gimp, Inkscape and I believe you can get a free trial of Coreldraw still so have a go with one of those - they're less CPU intensive than the Adobe suite.

If your PC is okay to run it, you should be able to get a free trial of Adobe Creative Cloud which will provide you Illustrator and Photoshop, more than enough for what you need by the sounds of things :)
