Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
The "handwritten" signature at the end of each Ask Leo! newsletter is nothing more than a picture of a signature inserted into the email.
Do you put your signatures on newsletters in some special way as it reads as if the signatures have been on a sheet of paper?
In this excerpt from Answercast #88 I show how I put my signature in each newsletter so it looks like I signed it.
Actually, it's really simple. I took a "picture" of my signature.
In this particular case, I took a scan of my signature and converted that scan into a picture. It's a jpeg (I think it's a jpeg; it might be a png) but it's a jpeg just like any other picture.
It just happens to be a pure black and white picture that matches me having written out my first name.
So that's really all it is. If you take a look at my article "How do I put a picture into a body of an email?" that's pretty much the exact same steps I'm taking here. Obviously in the newsletter I'm doing it in more of a production environment, since I'm doing this twice a week, but the bottom line is it is nothing more than a picture in an email.
