Rectangular Marquee Tool (M): This tool is used to make selections on your image in a rectangular shape.

Move Tool (V): Move tools can be quite useful when you have to place an image from one place to another. This tool is basically used to move the images.

Brush Tool (B): When you have created a basic design you can use the brush tool to look it more attractive.

Eraser Tool (E):  When we are trying something new, an eraser seems the most powerful tool. Considering, no need for describing the use of the eraser tool, moving to the next step.

Blur Tool (R): However blur tool is used for blurring the images or to hide something from the images or design, but in the logo creation blur tool can be used to make log look even more attractive. Create a design and give a little blur effect to the particular place. You yourself will see the changes. 

Text Tool: Without the text, Logo is incomplete. No matter how creative you have put in the design until you add some text above or below the design, the logo is never going to look attractive. To write name or text all you will need to do is pick text tool and select the font.

Zoom Tool (Z): Pretty obvious what this tool does. It allows you to zoom into your design or the image. While creating the logo, it can also be helpful. And the last(Though it’s not the last for this list, this tool is a last one.) tool is:

Hand Tool (T):  hand tool is used to move the object all over the window. If you’re zoomed in and your image area is larger than the window, you can use the hand tTool to navigate around your design.
