Custom Shape tool for your Signature

How to add a digital Signature

Signature Tutorial

This method is a very simple way of keeping your signature handy and ready to use. Most methods tell you to create a paintbrush of your signature, but you still have to play with the size to get it right. When using a custom shape, all you do is select your signature, click and drag. It doesnít matter what size your image is, you can drag it to fit. Once you have set this up, you never have to do it again. Since I donít use the shape tool that often, most of the time itís there ready for me and I just click on the tool and drag. Anyway, just thought you would find this useful.

Steve

Thanks for getting me thinking Steve. This is even easier in PSP 8 because PSP has built-in vectors and preset shapes.

Technique:
* Create sig in new doc (if you use text it's automatically vector)
* File > Export > Shape

To use:
* Select Preset Shape Tool
* Select sig from preset shape list
* drag to the size you want

Steve,

I'm a newbie, just reading posts. I saw your post from several years ago about digital signatures, but the link is no longer valid.

How to add a digital Signature

link-> Using the Custom Shape tool - no longer valid

Would you be kind enough to post the information again? Thanks.

BTW... Below your original post is an Edit button. Click it and you can replace the original (now bad) link with the updated one.

Hope all's well in FL. Happy turkey & cranberries...
