I may be wrong but I think there is an easier way than what you've shown. Use a plain white piece of copy paper and a fine tipped Sharpie marker (any color) to sign whatever you are wanting. Scan it into the computer and open it in Photoshop. Using the magic wand tool with contiguous unchecked select the writing then open a new layer and shift+f5 to fill with color you want. It will fill the selected portion on the new layer with your signature. Or just magic wand ctrl+J.

I just purchased CS6, have been looking for a good tutorial on how to create a personal watermark. When I seen your video posted on Photographytalk I thought I was finally going to get the information I needed. But after attempting to follow your instructions, I still cannot figure out the steps. It would have been a lot better instructions had you NOT used keyboard shortcuts, and explained how to reset your pen tool after making the first part of your signature. That's been the most common mistake I have come across when watching tutorials, each one the person always uses keyboard shortcuts, and doesn't fully explain how, what, or where to actually go and use the cursor. I guess I'll keep looking for a better explanation. If I were to rate this video, I would give it a 2, 10 being the best!

Yeah, probably not the most effective tutorial on this subject. The trick here is that you'll need an image with a transparent background (png, a layer in a psd), which you will copy into a new layer on your images, then adjust position and transparency.

Frankly, LR makes the entire procedure much, much easier.

Yes, I agree, TLC. Or, you could do the same, but when in PS, turn your signature into a stamp. I can't remember the exact steps to do this since I'm not in front of my computer, but it's MUCH easier than what this video shows!
