Hi guys,

I would need this hand written signature to be a bit more even, refined edges. This is a scan from paper and i removed the background, but the edges are quiet bad and also the lines doesnt look even. I would like to make it look the same line size with smooth edges, thank you for your help in advance!

Hi bali92
All I did is what others have already suggested to you in another post. I set up some vectors following the path of the writing and then just stroked it with a brush. By controlling the shape of the brush (you would also change color, size, etc, etc). I have attached a PNG file with an oval brush at 45 degrees and also attached the PSD file for you to change as you desire.
Hope that helps

Hi John -
Were both offered signatures done in PS? How did you create vectors in PS? I'm curious about your workflow since I struggled with this trying a few different methods in PS but couldn't acheive the clean lines...

Hi Jeff
- I loaded your image
- Created several Paths down the center line of your image
- Set the Brush tool to the desired brush (size, round or oval, etc etc)
- Turn off visibility of your original Layer
- Created a new blank Layer
- Stroked the Paths

Here are some helpx links from Photoshop that might help

Stroking Paths: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/adding-color-paths.html

Hope the workflow and links help you move forward

The image above shows the original signature. The thin line at the center of the stroke is the Path I made using Pen tool. For convenience, I separated the Paths into each letter as shown at bottom right of the above image - here, all paths are selected. At the bottom left is are layers where in each layer above Layer 0, I tried out different brush strokes, sometimes using oval brush, or round brush or different sizes.
@bali92 can make use of the PSD file in Post#4 by @thebestcpu and experiment with different brush strokes until a suitable output is attained.
