How to Upload a Signature

by Brandy Alexander

If you have an image file on your computer that displays your electronic signature, you can upload this image so you have the ability to publish it on your Web page or other Internet location. This signature is typically an image of your typewritten name or business title, which helps visitors identify you. When you upload your file, you place it on a Web host that gives you a URL address and makes it possible for you to show your work online. Access a free file host provider and upload your signature to publish it where you prefer.

Point your browser to a free, Internet file host such as FileDropper, MediaFire, FileFactory, YourFileLink or File Savr (see Resources).

Click the "Choose File," "Upload File" or "Browse" button that appears on the page and follow the prompts to select your signature file from your computer. If using MediaFire, click the "Drag and drop files here to upload" box and then either drag your signature onto the box that automatically displays, or click the box and use the dialog window to attach your file.

Click the "Choose File," "Begin Uploading Files" or "Upload" button to start the upload process. Note that File Dropper automatically begins this procedure after you select the file.

Copy the code that appears in the "Embed" text box to get the syntax that places your signature on a Web page. With MediaFire, click the "Go to My Files" button, click the "Share" button next to the signature file and then click the "Copy Link" next to the "HTML Embed Code" box. In FileFactory, click the signature file link, scroll to the bottom of the page and copy the code in the "Website (HTML)" text box.

Access the online area where you want your signature to display. Paste in the code and save your work.
