Darkening a Digital Signature

Hey there,

I've recently started using the latest version of Adobe Photoshop Elements.  I've figured out how to isolate my digital signature and add it to pictures and whatnot, but what I can't figure out for the life of me is how to darken it, make is a solid color, or change the color.  It looks very grainy, even when I've adjusted the contrast.  If someone has the patience to put up with my ignorance, I would love a little help.  Thanks so much in advance.

1. I am asasuming that the signature is free of the background and surrounded by transparency. You can "darken" it by duplicating the layer several times , and setting the layer blending mode to "darken." Then, flatten the layers. 2. To change the color, press CTRL+ left click on the layer thumbnail (not the name)     Open a solid color adjustment layer above the signature layer and select the new color.
