Because in my profession I have to deal with a lot of PDFs, I have my own favorite – PDFChef by Movavi. I use this software for almost everything that concerns a PDF; be it adding an image, fetching text, creating PDFs from scratch, or to insert a signature in PDF. The software has got everything I need with only the tiniest of compromises.
That being said, let’s move forward on the actual process of adding signature to a PDF using PDFChef. In order to do so, follow the steps given below:
Step 1: Before we move to Insert Signature in PDF file, we have to first download and install the PDFChef software from Movavi Website for Free.
Note: The Free Version is a trial version valid only for 7-days and contains all the features of the paid version. However, you will have to bear a watermark on your document.
Once you open the application, you will find the Interface Pretty intuitive in its own. It gives you various options including the option to create a new PDF file, Edit PDF File, Merge PDFs, and Convert PDFs To and From different formats.
Step 2: Because we are trying to Add Signature to a PDF, you can either Drag and Drop the PDF in the App or Click on Edit which will open a dialog box to let you choose the desired PDF file.
Step 3: Click on Edit > Add Signature once you have the desired PDF file open.
Step 4: You will now see the option to either Draw your signature using mouse or Trackpad or you can choose an image file with your signature.
Step 5: If you choose to import the file with your signature, which most people do, you can move the picture around and put it in its place.
Voila, you have successfully signed the PDF without having to go to the trouble of printing the PDF, signing it, and then scanning it again to send it forward. The process is pretty easy.
If you are planning to use this software for long, you will have to Purchase the Paid version of the software and you can either purchase a 1-year subscription or the LifeTime License. I prefer the Lifetime License more.
