Tuesday Tip: How to add your signature to a pdf file

10MayTuesday Tip: How to add your signature to a pdf file

These days, everyone is talking about ‘Life Hacks’ and how they can improve our day. With this in mind, we have decided to start a series of 'Tuesday Tips'. Each week our staff will tell you the tips that make their day in the office, or out on a shoot, that bit easier!

The first in our Tuesday Tips series comes from our Office Coordinator, Claire Lang.


Step 1 - Write your signature, the usual size, on a blank piece of paper.

Step 2 - Open up the PDF you wish to add your signature to.

Step 3 - Click on the suitcase icon along the top then the icon of a signature.

Step 4 - Select ‘Create Signature’ and choose ‘Camera’.

Step 5 - Hold your signature up in front on the camera until it transfers onto the screen, then press ‘Done'.

Step 6 - Your signature will now appear in a drop - down menu. Scroll down in the PDF to where you want to add your signature, then select it from the menu. 

Step 7 - You can now resize, or reposition, it as necessary. 

Step - 8 - At this point you can add text to your signature by selecting the ’T’ icon in the toolbar and typing in the text box. Creating separate boxes for each line is the easiest way to do this. 

Step - 9 - Remember to re-export your PDF by clicking ‘File’ then selecting ‘Export to pdf…’. If you forget to do this the recipient of your file will be able to move and alter your signature. 

Step - 10 - Send your PDF without that extra trip to the printer room! 


Keep an eye out next week for another office or filmmaking based tip!
