Do you like to “sign” your blog posts and emails by typing your name at the bottom of the text block?
If so, you can give your writings a more personal appearance by inserting an image depicting your handwritten signature below the last paragraph of text.
There are several ways to created a signature image, but here are two of the easiest methods that I have found:
1 – You can sign your name on a sheet of plain white paper and then scan the signature into your computer with a document scanner. If you don’t have access to a scanner, you can simply take a clear and sharp picture of the signature with your camera or mobile device.
Once you have your signature in digital format (most likely a JPEG image), you can load it into your favorite photo editor to re-size and/or crop it to your liking.
2 – You can use the handy online “Signature Creator” tool from our friends over at signature-maker.net to create your signature image file. Just use the “pencil” cursor to draw your signature into the box, then click the Save button to save the image to your computer.
If you can’t seem to create a realistic looking signature using the “pencil” cursor, you can cheat a bit and simply type out your signature using your choice of several cursive writing fonts. To use this option, click the Generate Signature Here link that located in the blue text box over on the right side of the window.
After you have created your signature image using one of the methods listed above, all you have to do is insert the image into your blog posts or emails in the location where you would usually type your name.
That’s all there is to it. Good luck!
