Add Personal Signature to Digital Art
The first step is to write your signature on a piece of paper (usually white) and scan it into AdobeR PhotoshopR. If you will be creating your digital art for print, you probably have already set the resolution of your artwork to 300 dpi or larger. You will want to scan your signature at that same resolution. See the User's Guide for your scanner for details.
- Once the resolution is decided, go to the Menubar in Photoshop and click File> Import. You will see a list of import options. Click on the name of your scanner.
- Once the scan is complete, use the Crop tool to crop away the surrounding area from your signature. Try to crop as close to your signature as possible without cutting away any of the signature.
- If the artwork for which you want to add your signature has a white area, you can simply copy and paste your signature onto a new layer in your artwork. Then use the Move tool to place the signature over the white area.
