    A few friends and I are attempting to get a sports blog started but none of us have any artistic ability or use with photoshop. I created a few ideas for logos in paint and was wondering if anyone here with expertise with creating vector graphic logos might be able to help me out.

    As embarrassing as this will look this is what I have so far with my awesome basic paint powers haha

    You need to use illustrator at least to get something out of vector, photoshop will always get it blury since they are pixels used instead of linear vectors.

    Are you looking simply to have that logo turned into a piece of vector art, or are you looking for someone to take that basic idea and come up with something else?

    You can also design vector graphics in photoshop, as long as you use the pen tool and shape layers.

    I don't want necessarly to argue with you, but I wouldn't be so sure about photoshop being able to do that.
    the good thing about vector art is that you can actually scale it to any size without loosing any resolution, since they are mathematical curves being made.

    Maybe it does now, and I just never used it...
    My question or comment is: The right tool for the right job, and in this case...
    I'd go with illustrator

    Photoshop CS3 has an amazing amount of Vector abilities. Fully scalable, easy to save, export, print and work with. Not only that, you can import resolution independent files into your Photoshop document and keep the vector file scalable to any size.

    lol i'm at work right now, i've tried that right away, yup it works, but I still find it easier in illustrator, I'm used to work that way.
    There is no right or wrong way I guess, when it comes to time saving propabilities. As long as it works. Just that most print shop prefer having the .eps format... I personnaly prefer working in illustrator for vectors, and import them in photoshop after. I find that sizing is easier in illustrator, but as we said, there is no right or wrong way to go as long, as you're comfortable!

    Photoshop is perfectly able to create vector shapes with the pen tool, and has been able to do so since a long time.

    However, if you are planning on making complex vector art, Illustrator is of course the wisest choice. Basic stuff can be done in Photoshop, though.
