Hey, I've made this logo on photoshop but i'm not an expert on photoshop or illustrator etc. and i can't give it a professional look. what i mean is; its outline, edge doesn't look straight. it looks like it glows. i made the logo with brush and eraser and i can't go any further and better with them on this one.  when its resized it doesnt look bad but in its original size it's really bad. so i wonder if you can help me with that?
I've resized the logo and put it, and i also put an zoomed in detail of my logo and air jordan's logo to show what i mean:

Since you did it in photoshop the edges are going to pixelate because its a raster image.
Most logos and typographic work like the air jordan logo are vectors so the edges will look cleaner for readability.

If you go over your image in illustrator it will probably fix the problem with your image quality.

hope that helps.

oh, i don't have the illustrator in this pc though, but i didn't know that i could do that to an image which exists already, i thought i had to design from scratch in the illustrator. thanks for the info.
  Cheap, when i saw the one you made i really got happy, i ain't gonna lie. can you do the same thing to the original if i send you that?

why don't you just go to and find one. Then take it into photoshop and retouch it

Yeah you need it in a "vector" format (illustrator). especially if you're submitting it to manufacturers/printers they need it that way. Looks like Cheap is helping you with that. Good luck!

in photoshop, flatten it so its a white background/black artwork.
go to image/adjustments/levels, and slide the far left slider and far right slider in until your "glow" is gone.

logos are usually in vector form to avoid scaling/pixelation issues.
if you're hell bent on making it a raster image (photoshop) make it as HUGE as possible, then save as either lossless TIFF or bmp (if tis black/white).

good luck!

When you change image size in photoshop theres a box called "resample image", check this and select nearest neighbour.

When your designing a logo stick to adobe illustrator. The quality will be 10000x better.

I don't think a silhouette is a good idea for a logo tbh, it could work well for a design or something though

I agree don't do that, make it more abstract . It's to obvious and gives no satisfaction to figuring out the relation of logo to product.

it's not really a logo though, you're right about it not being tasteful enough to be a logo..i'm thinkin about just printing that on a couple of shirts for myself.

Thanks for your responses, from now on when i do stuff like this i'm gonna be using the illustrator.

.ai has become the standard, but don't feel so boxed in with what you use. 
before .ai everything was bmp, before that everything was xeroxed/black marker, before that it was all rubylith.

yeah you could use live trace in illustrator, it'd clean the edges up for sure but it may throw some proportions off.

You have described that you need help in design/logo. I also feel some help few days ago but when I follow the given link my logo design completed with good quality. I also recommended you to follow the link for any kind of graphic/logo and image designing and printing.
