    Today i'll be showing you how to make a signature like this one:
    [​IMG]

    1.
    First of all we'll open a new page with 350 width and 125 height-
    [​IMG]
    Now we pick our render, I chose this one:


    Take the Render you chose and resize it so it will fit the page:
    [​IMG]

    2.
    Now we press right click on the layer and duplicate it 3 times so we'll have 4 layers.
    Now for the smudging part:
    We'll go to the first layer (the one on the bottom) and we'll right click on the blur (looks like a drop of water) and change it the to the smudge (looks like a finger) and we'll do the smudge in the shape of the Rough Round Bristle brush (its in the basic cs brushes set so theres no need to download), Now we smudge it to both ways that it will cover most of the signature.
    Result-
    [​IMG]

    Now we'll go to the second layer from the bottom but this time we'll put it the Linear Burn mode, Now we'll try to keep the smudging close to the render.
    Result-
    [​IMG]

    Now we'll go to the third layer from the bottom and we'll put it in the Linear Dodge mode,
    This time we can use more smudge.
    Result-
    [​IMG]

    3.
    We've reached the effects part,
    Click on the first layer from the top and we'll open the effects by clicking on the half black half white moon that is located in the right down corner in your screen.
    Now we'll click on Gradient Map, a new window will pop that inside of him will be a square that if you click on him it shows you alot of effects colors.
    Today we'll pick the Black,White one at 45% Opacity
    Result-
    [​IMG]

    Now we'll click on Gradient Map again only this time we'll choose the color called Specturm that looks colorfull, we'll put him on Color mode with 7% Opacity.
    Result-
    [​IMG]

    4.
    Okay now the Photo Filter, (which incidentally is not all that necessary, if you want to add it then do).
    Click on the half white half black moon and choose Photo Filter.
    I used the colors Green and Light blue(The Photo Filter part is really necessary, you use it only if you have a render that lacks color).
    Result-
    [​IMG]

    5.
    Now for the nick part, I wrote whatever I felt like writing and I took some random font (Agency FB in Overlay)
    I made a frame and there it is!
    The signature is ready for use! :D

    You can do it like what Affluent said, but I click on the Rectangular Marquee Tool ( The square under the arrow in the tool bar on the left ) then I mark what I want to resize then I right click and pick Free Transform (:

    I tried to do this but I don't understand, what you mean with the "Round Bristle brush".
    Also my smudges seem to be 'irregular' and ugly.
