Add Personal Signature to Digital Art - 2
I leave this next option for last because the amount of success you might have with it depends on your signature and the amount of customizing you can do to the Live Trace Presets.
- Open your scan into Illustrator and use the Selection tool to select the signature.
- Now the Live Trace button is available in the Options Bar. Clicked on the small arrow next to the Live Trace button for the drop-down menu of Presets. Each Preset will give a different result. When you try this yourself, you can fine tune the Presets in the Tracing Options dialog box. Just click on Tracing Options from the drop-down menu. You may even find a result that you like better than your real signature. My favorite was the result that I got from the Simple Trace Preset.
