How-To Make Signature Brushes in Photoshop

Making a signature to place on your artwork or use as a watermark brush in Photoshop is very easy. There are 3 ways to do this:

1. Write your name on a piece of paper and scan in into the computer.
2. Use a script font to simulate your signature.

Now you take the image and click on the cog wheel (above figure 1) and then on Load Brushes (above figure 2). Name the brush “signature” or “watermark” depending on your needs. Now look for it at the bottom of your brush palette.

3. If you have a Wacom tablet you can just write it directly into Photoshop. Then click on “edit” and then “define brush preset” (see image below). Name the brush and you are ready to use it.
