    So you want to make a signature?? (Mac)

    Okay, I am going to explain a free way to make a basic, 2 picture 600x150px signature on your Mac. This one isnt as envolved as the PC version because I have yet to find a free version that includes selection transparency and adding text If you know of one, let me know and I will redo this entire post.

    For this project, we are going to use SketchBookPro 2010 (Download free for 15 days here Autodesk - Autodesk SketchBook Pro - Product Trial)

    Okay, so now that you have Digital Image open, go to File>New. For size dimensions, go to Image>Canvas Size:



    Now that you have the Canvas Size window open, fill in the dimensions (600 Width, 150 Height)



    Now we need to add our images. Add your bottom image first! Go to File>Add Image:





    Now we need to Scale our picture. Select Scale from your mouse tool and resize into your window how you would like the image to appear:



    Now Move where you would like to place it:



    Now repeat the above steps to Insert, Scale and Move your second picture:



    Once you have everything the way you want it, Save the file as a JPEG:



    Final product form SBP2010:



    Now we are going to upload our photo to PhotoBucket. In here we are going to add text. Select Edit above the image:



    Go to Decorate>Add Text:



    Once you insert your text, play with the settings to your liking and select Apply:



    Then Save a Copy! Thats it, final product....quick, easy and free!!!! Final Pic:



    And incase you were wondering, ITHINKICAN is my alter ego

    Around $100 for full license. SketchBook Pro 2010 - Autodesk (SketchBook Pro 2010)

    Im still looking for other programs that I can get for free and have a couple more options. I wouldnt waste my money on this one, you can get PS6 Elements for about the same I think
