It supports a lot more than just bitmap... I'm just unsure what vector formats 
it supports. Regardless, he's more of an idea source than a final logo 
producer, considering he's using photoshop. ;)

Indeed and my friend is not a pro, he's just good. :) I would also be 
interested to see what some pros can do.

Also, looking back at Luca's and Alex's logos based on Michael's idea, the 
summation above the main text is inconsistent but I'm unsure as to their 
equivalence. One has sum( 0,N-1, F(v)*cos((2x + t)*v*pi/2N) ) the other has 
sum( 0,N-1, F(x)*cos((2x + 1)*v*pi/2N). Note the swapping of v/x and t/1.

Jindrich's points about simplicity in a logo are interesting.
