Adding a Photographic Element to Your Vector-Based Logo

763 Adding a photo element to your vector logo from Deke's Techniques by Deke McClelland

Hey, gang. Sorry I wasn’t here yesterday (or is it today that I wasn’t here?) with the latest episode of Deke’s Techniques. Deke and I have spent the last 37-ish hours traveling to Lembeh Straight, Indonesia for the Capturing Critters Macro Photography Workshop. Which is not about setting mouse traps or swinging butterfly nets, but rather photographing the tiny creatures that live underwater in this quirky ecosystem. (It’s the same workshop that inspired Deke and Hergen’s Underwater Photography courses a couple years ago.) Anyway, Tuesday disappeared somewhere over the Pacific Ocean.

In this week’s free Deke’s Techniques episode, Deke shows you how to incorporate a photo into the logo project he created last week. It’s a useful set of instructions for using clipping masks (as opposed to Photoshop’s goofy new Frame tool) to give yourself the most flexibility.

Deke’s Techniques, check it out wherever (and whenever) you are.
