Photoshop is most likely not the correct tool to use or the tool you want for a "logo". It would be much better to use Illustrator or some other vector editing tool. In any event, assuming you have a raster image layer in Photoshop, if the Magic Wand and other selection tools aren't working well for you. You can try using the Channels in the image ...

What you have looks like a logo, but technically, its a poor quality raster file. Actual logo files do not look like this. You don't see pixels and definitely don't see white corners in properly made logo files. Forget Photoshop. Install Illustrator. Learn how to rework that in vector format. You can re-build this logo into a proper file in 5 minutes in ...

If you're in a pinch - use the pen tool in photoshop to trace that arc at the bottom and create a path outside of the blue - doesn't have to be pretty and just contain the white you want removed. Once created, Command select the path - which should give you the walking ants around the white you want removed.. hit delete But that is kind of "half-butt&...

Photoshop is not really the right tool for creating or editing logos. Sure you could use it if you really have to, but it's less than ideal for such a job because Photoshop only has very limited vector support. If you don't have access to the original logo file (which should ideally be a vector file), I think the best way to do this would be to recreate the ...

Click and drag when you begin a path, and also when you close the path. This will make the join a smooth anchor rather than a corner anchor. Example Alternatively, if you've already accidentally made a corner anchor, select the anchor with the Direct Selection Tool A, and change the anchor to a smooth anchor by clicking on the "Convert selected anchor ...

I'm not a Figma user, but doing something like that is usually not possible in vector graphics because the whole vector shape (which is a single closed path) can only have one stroke, and one fill, and only a closed path will display a fill properly. So you can't have individual segments of the same path with a different stroke. Anyway, here's a workaround: ...

I think the Warp Arc Effect still works, you just need to refine the settings to get a closer match. Selecting the objects and adding a Warp Arc of 32% Bend and -3% Vertical Distortion worked for my object. If you add a small negative vertical distortion, it helps sell the effect. Then you can move the lines around to line them up. If you spend more time, I'...

The arc where the dB marker lines and number reside is not at all circular. The needle of the meter rotates around a fixed axis but its rotation center is totally different. This is typical in audio devices, round meter scale is rare. The meaning of the scale in VU (=volume unit) meters has some standards but in consumer devices good looks laid out by ...

You can play around with the Smooth Tool which does precisely that, it smooths out rough corners in a path. Double click the tool icon to reach the settings, where you can adjust how accurate you need it to be. There is also something called Simplify Path which could possibly help if you have many of these 'kinks'. A lot of Youtube videos about these, so do ...
