I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC version 2020.013.20074

Mac Pro 7,1 Big Sur (although this issue occurred when I was still using Catalina)

No matter what resolution I save my signature image at or what file type (JPG, PNG, TIFF), the signature appears low-res and blurry when I load it into Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

The signature is perfectly sharp in the original image and it has a transparent background

 

I have seen others post about this but it seems there have been no solutions posted (that I could find).

 

If anyone knows how to fix this (or, whether it even can be), I would really appreciate it.

Thank you

Hi,

Can you describe the steps you use to insert your signature?

I used my webcam to take a photo of my signature 

I then opened the image and removed the background

I then opened a pdf in Adobe Acorbat Pro DC

I clicked on "Fill & Sign"

Then "Sign Yourself"

Then "Add Signature"

Then "Image"

I then loaded in (on 3 different attempts) a .png, .jpg and .riff

(The signature image appeared blurry in the signature window)

Hit "Apply" 

Then inserted my signature into the pdf and it was blurry

 

 

I have also added this same signature image into Apple Preview and the signature is beautifully sharp

Do you need to have your document digitally signed?

In the past, I just "inserted the image" to add my signature at the end of the page.

You are correct that I can add in the image and it will be sharp

However, that being said, I am still attempting to find out why adding my image as a signature in the "Fill & Sign" function saves it therein as a blurry image
