How to Sign Documents Digitally in Mac OS X with Preview App Using Trackpad

Signing your signature digitally had never been so easy before. Though you could do the same in the previous versions of OS X, it involved quite a lot of cumbersome process. Such as signing your signature on a piece of paper, scanning it with the help of camera and so on. Lengthy, isn’t it?

It is the time of digitization as almost everything has been turned into digital form for more convenience. Supposing you want to send some specific signed emails or documents with your real signature, it won’t take much of a time if it is ready-made and saved in your Mac’s Preview app. That’s why there is a need to have it in digital form!
