Hi in this video I'll show you how to thaw a PDF form and how to sign it beyond signature normally you might want to print the form fill it out with a pen sign it scan it back in and then email it or submit it wherever it needs to go well instead of doing that let's do it all on a computer as an example we're going to use the GVSU admissions form you can of course apply online but let's go ahead and download a PDF form here here's the PDF form which is multi page and we have signature the very bottom now the nice thing the nice thing about the preview program is that it will allow us actually to fill out the form on the fly so let's go ahead and download the form first we downloading downloading the form and by default on a Mac it is going to open in the preview program so many forums as it is the case with this one allow me to type in text and numbers right into the fields well sometimes you will run into a picture a PDF form that's just a picture and so for that watch my next video about the GIMP program where I'll show you how to fill out that kind of a form but for now we're filling out the form and now we are ready to sign it well here is a spot for the signature of course you could go ahead and just type in your name but what if you wanted to have a signature that is your own well here's what you would do you would go to preview preferences and then click on signatures or another way to get there is to open the menu and click on signature create signature okay so it takes us to the same place and now my camera is activated and I actually wrote on a piece of paper a signature which now I'm going to go ahead and scan so let's see how this is going to work for me I have a signature here and will let the computer recognize it all right here we go accept and so now I have the signature is one of my choices and all I have to do is simply select where it's going to appear on the phone I can now go ahead and save the form if I was to reopen it it will already have my signature on it thank you very much if you'd like to know how to do this on Windows with the GIMP application take a look at my next video
