I am looking for a signature font to sign my pictures. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Why don't you scan in one of your own hand written signatures? Who would want a "fake" signature created by a font? Not me.

On a clean piece of white paper sign your name. Scan it and then knock it out using multiply layer or just select the white areas and delete. Then place it on your image in photoshop.

Your signature is your personal mark, a font will only depersonalize it.

But, if you're heart is set on it, check out P22's Cezanne font or their Davinci font. Both are very cool.

I actually just created one by "signing" my graphics tablet. Took a couple tries to get it right but spared the scanning, etc.

Some few years ago, I recall seeing ads from one or two companies that would create a font from highly controlled samples submitted of ones handwriting. Anyone heard of or know anything about this more recently?

For screen use (small resolution, e.g. web, cd, etc.), the MiniFonts are interesting.
