i'm assuming i can sign a crisp white sheet of paper and scan the signature into the computer, from there i can import into photoshop, but i don't really know how i can place it on another document - obviously i know how to do it including the white background but i need the background to be transparent as it is not going onto another white background.
any idea of the tools i should be using to accomplish this?
Another and probably better method of getting rid of a white BG: Open both images. CRTL-A (select all) of the signature image, CTRL-C (copy.) Select the target image, CTRL-V (paste.)
When you paste the sig into an image, it creates a new layer.
On the layers pallet, double-click the signature layer or select the layer, then select Layer Options from the pop-up menu on the layers palette.
Leave "blend if" set to gray. On the upper slider "This Layer," begin sliding the right slider (white) to the left. This will make all pixels in the "upper end" of the tonal range transparent. Slide it until all the white edging is gone.
Flatten the image, save it.
1. Sign the paper and scan the image to get it in a photoshop
2. Once in image of the signature of the image is in Photoshop:
click on Edit > Define Brush Preset(this is in CS3, but I am sure it is worded almost the same in earlier versions).
3. Name your New Brush.
Once defined you could use that new Brush on other images and it is transparent and you could change color of it and size as you would for any other brush.
Hope this Helps
