Adding Signature using an Image
If you have an image of your signature, you can also add it to your Google Docs document. Follow these steps:
- First, open your Google Docs document.
- Click on Insert > Image.
- You can either upload the image from your computer or from your Google Drive.
- Resize and position the image as required.
Adding Signature using Add-ons
Another method to add a signature to your Google Docs document is by using add-ons like DocuSign or HelloSign. These tools allow you to create and add digital signatures, and they’re quite easy to use.
Here’s a simple guide on how you can use HelloSign add-on:
