Happy Monday, Friends!
I had a fab reader and friend, Talia, ask about how to add a signature to the bottom of your posts. The answer is, you need to add the signature image to your post template so that it appears on every post. I am going to walk you through the steps to adding YOUR signature to your posts. It’s very simple and it adds that nice personal touch to your posts.
1. First, you need to create your signature. This is how I did it. I opened Photoshop and clicked on “File>New” to create a new canvas to work on. I entered the following numbers into the fields. I always like to start out with a 300 ppi resolution, then resize to 72ppi afterward. So, just start out with these numbers and click “OK”.
3. Now that I have typed my name, I will flatten the image and click on “Image>Image Size” to resize the signature for the web. Just enter the numbers below. I changed the resolution to 72 ppi and adjusted the amounts to 160 pixels wide by 60 pixels high. You can change it to be any size you’d like, but I find that this is a nice size for a signature. Click OK and save it to your computer somewhere (I save mine to “My Pictures” usually)
4. Now that you have created and saved your “signature”, you will want to upload it to a photo hosting website like Photobucket. Just click the green “upload” button at the top of the screen and in seconds, your image will appear. If you hover your mouse over your signature image, you will see some different code options appear. You will want to copy the “HTML Code”. Usually clicking once on the code box will automatically copy this code.
