      Hi All!

          I assume you are referring to your hand-written signed name?

           

          If that is so-

          1. Create a signature in a pixel editor (Photoshop) by scanning, photographing, etc.

          2. Delete any background behind the signature so as to have "transparent" pixels.

          3. Save the signature image as a .PNG file  (this is the only file type to preserve transparency for this purpose)

          4. In Lightroom create an Identity Plate, using the signature.png as a GRAPHIC.

          5. In the Print module you can add this Identity Plate anywhere on an image or its border.

           

          If you use the signature to design a Watermark, it can only be placed on an image (not a border).
