How to make a signature that fits into a dotPhoto signature signature block

  • Sign a piece of paper, and scan the paper or take a picture of it with your camera phone.
  • The signature block is 540 dots wide by 209 dots tall for the 8"x4" card shown above, and is 800x300 dots for 5"x7" folding cards.
  • Save as a JPG and upload to your dotPhoto account -- perhaps to an album called Signature.

What if I don't want to add a signature?  Use a blank block.
