Podcasts Delay

Sorry everyone if you didn’t already realize it, but new shows for CTW (Mac & Windows) and Cool Tech shows for last week were/are cancelled, due to me going on vacation. Shows will resume new episodes as regularly scheduled for this week, so CTW and CT will be recording live¬†tomorrow (Sunday, 02/23). Thank you for understanding.


CTP Mac #1: Pictures of Signatures

In this week’s episode of “Computer Tip Weekly”, we’ll discuss a trick that allows us to take pictures of signatures using the iSight Camera, and paste them into documents using the Preview app.

How to:¬†Open Preview, go to the toolbar on the top of the screen, then click Preview, then Preferences. Go to the Signatures tab, and click the plus button. Sign your name with a black pen on a piece of paper, and hold it up to your camera. Click Accept. If you would like to save the signature, click the check next to “Save this signature after Preview quits”. Now open an image or PDF or other document you would like to sign. Open the edit toolbar and click on the Signature icon. Hope this helps!
