|The Best Way is to find some artwork you like on the
internet and touch it up. To find artwork, you can use
AltaVista to search for images at:
Once you find it, either download or use the right
mouse button while positioned over the image on a web
site. Then do a "save image as" and save it onto your
computer. You can paste several images together and give
some a transparent background using MS Paint which
comes with Windows (START->PROGRAMS->ACCESSORIES->PAINT.
Don't double click the saved file or it may come up in
Netscape or another editor. Open Paint, then choose
FILE | OPEN, etc. You may need to do a SAVE AS to
convert it to a gif file if you need a transparent
background. Select Image|Attributes|Transparency
(don't need to select color). This will allow you to
get just a football for example without background.
Select the football, cut it and paste it onto your logo.
Play with it, you can edit by pixel by View|Zoom and
choose a paintbrush and color. This is a fast way to
make a fairly sophisticated logo for your team. You
will also want to add the words for the team name.
After you have created your logo, just e-mail it to me and I will post it on the web site.
