How to re-size Photo / Signature for Application Form


How to cut the signature area of 80mm width X 35mm height on a paper ?


There is no hard and fast rule for this. You could try this out.

  • On a white piece of paper, using a ruler and a pencil, draw a rectangular box of the dimension.
  • Now sign within this box, using a blue or black ball point pen (or whichever color has been suggested).
  • Scan this paper and save as pdf or jpeg.
  • Now open this file in photoshop or GIMP or any image editor tool you have.
  • Use the crop option to cut along the box you had drawn.
  • Now save this image.
  • Ensure that the border of the box is not visible in the final image you have.

I think this is one of the easy ways to do it.

  1. Simply scan the image.
  2. Open any image editor & open blank document of required size
  3. Copy the signature & past here
  4. Using resize tool, fit the signature in this new document
  5. Save
