I got a request to produce an online tutorial on the creation for digital ID using Adobe Acrobat & the ability to sign documents.
First of all I hope you guys know that what we are doing is to create a ‘digitized signature’ as compare to a digital signature. A true digital signature or ID requires no scribble on a paper. That’s the current trend & I assume the only official way to sign any legal document.
So here goes…
1. Make sure you already scanned your signature. Preferably using a black ink on a clean white paper. Scan hi-res, at least at 300 dpi. Save it to either in JPEG or PNG format. I prefer the later as it accomodate transparent background.
2. Open your Adobe Acrobat Professional. Not Adobe Reader OK!
9. That’s it you had just created a digital ID.
10. Now we have to create the ‘skin’ or appearance of the ID. So don’t close you Acrobat as yet.
