Now your next step is to open up a new file in Photoshop. I will use 500×200 and 300 ppi. Open up your .png picture your going to use, and when that tab open’s up click Select>Select All and then go to Edit>Copy and go to your signature which is marked “Untitled” and place it in the signature. Move it around and use part of it anywhere in the signature. After you have done this, make a copy of your layer (Ctrl+J) and then you can now resize the image using SHFT key and your mouse to have it be the designated size you would like.
Now you will need to use the drop tool to gather two contrasting colors within your render/.png file so that you can do the background. Once you have decided then you will put a layer underneath your render layers. Apply a filter to that layer by going to Filter>Render>Cloud.
Put the copied background layer on Color Burn at a 50% Opacity.
Now you want to use a round brush with no hardness at 200 px. Use black and white for the colors and go around the signature to find all the dark places and light places and put those colors with the brush on them to specify the dark and light areas of the signature. Once you have done that, put it as a Soft Light at 75% Opacity.
Make a new layer and go to IMAGE>APPLY IMAGE and it will put all the layers you have made thus far into one single layer. You will now need to go to IMAGE>Auto Tone, IMAGE>Auto Contrast, and IMAGE>Auto Color.
Couple more steps and you will have your signature. Start a new layer, go to IMAGE>Apply Image and go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur and use 8 to 10 for the settings and put that on as a Clipping Mask on Overlay. Put the Opacity at around 20% to 30%. Start a new layer and go to IMAGE>Apply Image and go to FILTER>Other>High Pass and use 8 for the setting and put that on as a Hard Light at around 20% Opacity.
Presto! You now have your signature. It is up to you now to decide if this is enough or you would like to add text or make the color more intense. I however am going to add text and make the color a little more intense to show what you can do with it. I will use for the text, “NAME HERE“; for example. It will be up to you, the individual, to decide within yourself the end result of your signature by going by your gut instinct. I will also add a border to the signature.
