so the other day one of my colleagues asked me how he could insert a copy of his electronic signature into a PDF document our client was okay with an electronic signature but we wanted to provide a more professional look than printing the page having him sign it and then scanning it and re inserting it into a PDF document that we created straight from the file so here’s the workaround that I showed him he had his signature file in his signature electronically in various formats a gif a ping and a JPEG so the first thing that he tried to do was just drag and drop the image but every time the image would open he would drag it into the PDF file Acrobat would simply open it up as its own file in a new window there wasn’t really a whole lot we could do we couldn’t insert it then so here’s the workaround that I came up with for him we opened up the various files the image files in Word right here and this is the JPEG the gif and the ping in this order and what we did was now that they’re in word hit ctrl C to copy them or right-click copy come over here hit ctrl V to paste or right click paste isn’t showing up anyway hit ctrl V and now it’s actually dropped the image into the PDF file it’s very large but that’s okay because going to full screen we can now adjust the size now there’s one problem no matter what the file format over here we can see the PNG the ping has no background on it but when we move the the ping over here not only does it lose a lot of resolution it does have a background so there’s no way that we found to uh to have a background list signature in the P dropped into a PDF file in the same way that you can do with a word file but this is a pretty good workaround so what we did is we just put a signature right there and that’s how we did the signature the the gif also worked pretty well though it lost a lot of resolution what we found was that the JPEGs the JPEGs really looked the best and translated the best into into Acrobat PDF so that is how to put your electronic signature into an Adobe Acrobat file using Microsoft Word I have Word 2003 running on this computer but this also works with 2007 2010 and I’m pretty sure that it works with with some of the older versions of two of Word like 97 and those hopefully you aren’t using anything older than 2003 though at any rate if you have any questions or comments post those in the comments and if this was helpful to you give me a thumbs up or like and that would be great because that lets me know what’s been useful and if you’d like to see more tips and tricks like this feel free to subscribe to my channel because more of them will be coming out in the coming months and years
