    Electronic signature - how to?

    I have a document or two that could be signed electronically. I think this has something to do with an already scanned copy of my signature, but not sure.

    How do I do them?

    Alan? Steve?

    The ones I have done are super easy. You just click on the signature line it tells you to. The ones I use tell me when I am done and then I click finish and send. Have had to do all the real estate paperwork that way. Sometimes after the first click on a line it gives me a signature to adopt. If it’s harder then no advice).

    These aren’t fancy forms like from a bank or real estate agent. It’s in a Word doc. It’s a photography release for a few of my shipwreck photos. My printer is out of ink and I don’t feel like going out to get some.

    The last couple real estate purchase of we’ve made had a signing things electronically. The electronics signature app was already installed and tied to the document. So yeah I don’t know how to embed that into a living a word document. So I was not helpful at all ha ha.

    The only suggestion I have for signing a Word document meant to be physically signed would be to create an image of your signature in something like Microsoft Paint and embed it into the doc.

    Didn't the sender provide any instructions? If it's a word document can you sign something and scan it?

    My printer is out of ink. Don’t feel like going out to get ink just for this. Sender doesn’t care how it’s signed. Just that it’s signed.

    Sign a blank piece of paper. Take a photograph. Send to your laptop. Save as a jpeg. Copy and embed it on the Word document and save. Send the document back to them.

    That worked. Thanks so much. I need to reduce the size of it as the file was sort of big but it worked for this purpose.
