Add Signature to Documents Online For Free
Did you ever need to sign a PDF form, like that registration or application form that you needed to complete online? In the past, you probably had to print the form, fill and sign it, and either scan it or send a hard copy to wherever it needed to go. Besides needing a printer and a scanner, the whole process is just too time consuming. Now there is a far easier way to sign PDF forms. You can simply use pdfFiller’s editor to electronically sign PDF documents! To get started, you can upload a form to your account or open a document that’s already there. When you open the form you will see a toolbar along the top of the page, where you will find the Sign button.
Click the Sign button to open the signature manager, which allows you to type, draw, sign, upload, or capture a signature. pdfFiller verified signatures can be placed with one click, and are automatically saved for later use.
To type a signature, simply click the T icon and type your name. Your signature will appear in a handwriting-styled font. To draw, click the fountain pen icon and use your mouse or trackpad to draw your signature by clicking and dragging. You can also adjust the color and thickness of the signature. To sign with your finger, click mobile device and enter your phone number or email address. Open the link you receive via text message or email on your phone, and follow the instructions to sign with your finger. To capture a signature, click the webcam icon and allow pdfFiller access to your camera.
Then simply sign a piece of paper and hold it up to the camera, so the signature fits inside the blue box, then click Take. You can then choose to make adjustments to the scan, or use the signature as-is. To upload a signature, click the arrow icon and navigate to an image of your signature on your computer. Just like with capture, you can then choose to use the signature as-is, or make changes. Available edits include crop, ightness, contrast, flip, rotate, and auto-adjust. Once you’ve placed a signature, you can use the arrow to move, and the tree icons to resize it. You can add as many signatures as you would like. Your electronic signatures will automatically appear in the signature manager, ready to be placed. You can also remove any signature with the trash can icon.
