Handwritten signature

Postby laurie » Sat Nov 17, 2007 2:01 pm

Hi Lynn and all,

I was wondering if anyone knew of a program where you could create a handwritten signature - hopefully free.

I know you have a handwritten signature, LYnn - what do you use?

Thanks!

Years ago I scanned my signature and then used Corel Draw's trace function to change it to a vector graphic (.wmf) As a vector, it could be tweaked until it looked better than my handwriting. Now I use it for all my laser-printed business correspondence.

I don't know if any of the popular programs have a bitmap -> vector conversion.

You can use most any photo editing software I use Paint shop pro then create a new image about 200X100 or so then use a cursive font. Or do it by hand scan it then crop it so its the size you want.

I wrote it on white paper and used a scanner to scan it into my computer - then edited it using an image editing program as suggested above.

Here is another option too:

Try www.mylivesignature.com. You can type your name and pick a signature style that you want. It's free, and they will give you the html to put in your website. It may be a good alternative if you don't want people on the net to have your real signature.

I thought scanning was the easiest way.

Please don't do it if you're doing it to put on your website. That is a VERY dangerous thing to do!

Why? such items put on legal papers end up legal!

So here is what I do. I just put my first name on my website letters.
