I understand that Adobe Illustrator is better for making logos because they can be re-sized to any size. I also understand that Adobe Photoshop is better for actually cutting/adding effects to photos.

However, what if I want to take a photo, add effects to it and also then add my logo to it that I designed in AI?

Should I create/add effects to my photo in photoshop and then import the logo as a stamp from AI (or something like that)? Or should I do the project in AI by importing the photo I edited from photoshop?

If done in AI, I was thinking to make my logo into a symbol and then just reuse it.




  1. Just modify your photo in PS and then drag and drop the logo from AI. It will be a smart object in PS, resize it and place it where you need. PS is better at handling photo size and effects.

  2. The first answer is spot on. Create your logo in Illustrator so you can use it anywhere and add it in PS since the photo is a raster image and is not infinitely scalable anyway.
