To create an electronic signature, use the Paint graphics program available with the Windows operating system. Use the Brushes option in this program to draw the signature on the screen, and save it as a PNG or GIF file.
Begin creating the e-signature by opening the Paint program. To do this, click on the Start menu of Windows, click on Accessories under All Programs, and then click on Paint. Now, click on the arrow pointing downwards on the top-left corner of the page, and choose Properties or click on Image on the top left of the page, and select Attributes.
Adjust the height and width of the box in the window that opens, so that there is adequate space to draw the signature. Select Inches under Units in this box. Next, choose the Brush icon from the panel on the left of the page, and select the thinnest line from the size options at the bottom of this panel. If Windows 7 is used, click Brushes on the ribbon, and select Calligraphy brush 1 from the menu that opens.
Choose the signature color as required. If desired, pick white color as the signature's background. Then, place the cursor towards the left of the box, press the mouse button, and draw the signature as if writing on a paper. Ensure that the signature does not go beyond the box's edges.
Finally, save the signature as a PNG or GIF file as these help to maintain its transparency and allow the
e-signature to be used on any background.
