Maybe there's someone here who's got a great idea bout that? Would be cool!
Basically I'd like to know what prog you guys would suggest and the tools in there.. not that much of a ps fan, rather psp coz it's easier

Here's my suggestions...
First of all, i'd work on the dolphin more, the shape needs a little tweeking for it to resemble a dolphin more. The lines around it obscure it too much - i'd either change them to a different color (probably blue...) or make them less prominent so they don't detract from the dolphin as much. As far as programs, I would think that Illustrator would be the best so that it's a vector file, but that's up to you.

For your logo, I think you need to simplify. Less is more. The dolphin is hard to recognize, it takes too much time. But the overall shape is a good start. Try working on it a bit. As far as the lines around it are concerned, I don't think they add anything. You may want to try to rotate the dolphin to see if it fits better horizontaly or vertically. Try putting it into some shapes to see how it looks. And the most important thing, have a try at different typos. Try a lot before you choose one !
Good luck !

So today I finally downloaded the illustrator trial, messed around with it and this is what I made of the logo now I must say that I really like the way illustrator makes them curves amazingly smooth! not gonna ditch that proggie yet!
The reason that illustrator smooths out the lines is because it does things in vector art, which is geometric, rather than raster, which is done in pixels.
I use a vector art program XARA X1 (http://xara.com). It probably doesn't have all the frills of illustrator, but it does a good job, has a very user friendly interface with excellent "help" and is a whole lot cheaper than Adobe products.
Xara was originally designed for Corel (CorelXara) and has just recently gone off on its own.
They also have a fully function free trial.
