It’s so cute to make your own animated name signature. And it’s not so difficult to do this. There are free online programs you can use for this. I will show you a step-by-step guide to make your own awesome signature.
Here are some examples of animated signatures I made to show you which result you can get.
How to make your own animated name signature?
I start to erase stuff on an image using Paint.
Step 1 – Find a suitable copyright free image
Step 2 – Get rid of the extra’s in Paint and find a suitable font to go with your image on Pixlr.com/express
Step 3 – Resize your image +/- 300 px width in Paint again
Step 4 – Take your image over to Pixlr.com/editor and use the want to make it transparent. Use the Shift key to select more areas and the Cntrl key to deselect.
- Select with want
- Invert selection
- New image – check the both boxes
- Save image 1 as PNG
Step 5 – Erase the eye and add a little stripe for a closed eye
Step 6 – Save image 2 as PNG
Step 7 – Load your 2 images up to Gifmaker.me, to get a delay in the moving eye you can upload the open eye several times.
Step 8 – set the timer on 1000 ms
Step 9 – Create Gif Animation
Step 10 – Download your image
When you are called Heather, you may use this image freely as your animated signature.
