Can someone tell me what is the easiest way to get a signature on my pics. I want something simple like "Qwik 2003", but I can’t seem to figure out how to do that. I can do one photo at a time, but Photoshop 7 always wants to save as a PSD file, I just want an action, where I can hit play, and have my sig input onto a bunch of pics, and have them save as again. I have Photoshop 7, and I am too
simple to figure it out.. Any help would be most appreciated guys.

Thanks

Add "Flatten" to the sequence and you can save as tiff or jpeg or whatever.

Try this …

Create your signature using the text tool. Rasterize the layer and apply whatever layer styles you like. Make sure this is on a transparent layer. Select around the signature and then create a custom brush. Rename this to whatever name you prefer.

When you want to use it, select the brush, size it the way you want, choose the colour, position the brush and press once … et voila!

Enjoy and have fun.

Hi; I’d say to write your name on a piece of paper and scan it . Then, open it and double click the white background thereby making it a regular layer. Then click on the background with the Magic Wand Tool. Now click Delete on your keyboard . You will be left with just your signature. Save it as a Brush. Now make a new canvas. Then start recording for a new action. With the new canvas active, click on your signature brush.Using Black as your foreground color, or whatever color you want, use your signature brush on the canvas. Click in the same exact spot a few times till dark enough. Now click to stop recording your action.( keep in mind that you can get more involved and write into your action to use a style at the end so you could write it to add your signature in gold ) Save it as Signature Action or whatever you want to call it. You can use it one photo at a time …or use in in Batch to do a number of photos. Good Luck;

P.S. … if you did not mean "signature" but rather just logo, you do not need to write your name & scan but rather just type what you want on a transparent background and save it as a brush that way . I took you literally when you said signature.
