Question signiture

For years I have been using a ready made font that I fixed up to use on my pictures, because over the years my handwriting has gone down hill. Now after looking and working with artists I feel it is to perfect. how do I take my signiture and put it on my pics without having to write it by hand each time and I also can edit it

use a simple paintbrush in either ps or psp or even one of the others. use a fairly small blank image with the background set to transparent and simply 'write' your signature on it. save it. when you need it again simply open that file and paste your sig over your other image.

i like having two, one dark for placing on light images and one light for placing on dark images.

A another quick thought, you could always right it onto paper and then scan it and use however you prefer

Create it in the font then smudge it up a bit to make it look more natural.

I was thinking =that is dangerous= doesn't look funny that I keep changing my sig. every couple of months when signing my pictures.?
and what would you do to make it look more natural.
I did do my signiture last night (in fact hours worth) and it looks pretty good - I have been using minstral that I fixed up and then I saw cac shushi brush and fixed that up and put in on several pictures but after looking at it -it looked just to perfect looking for my writing syle these days. As you all know after using a computer for years your handwriting goes to cr-p. and I won't mention the stiff fingers.

Now Ydelle nobody wants a fellow member to resort to dangerous situations i.e. "thinking !!

So I will explain what I did. Drew in Fireworks with the mouse (yes !) a good simil of my true signature. Like I said I used Fireworks but it would be the same if not easier in Photoshop. Selected it and converted to path. Then with the pen tool removed the unnecesary anchor points and softened the curved parts. After I was satisfied with the result saved as a jpg and now I use it in some of my images.

The idea of converting it to a brush is also good.

I will prepare a flash (in the sense of quick) tutorial and post it later.

Regards - Marthig
