change background of transparent png to that of pdf
I created a transparent digital signature png from a scanned original handwritten signature.
It works fine for adding a signature to pdf documents with a white background.

For those times when the background is other shading/pattern, say a 'grayscale' looking shading/pattern...I want to 'adapt' the background of the signature.png to that of the pdf.

So in practice open the pdf, select an area that has different shading/pattern up to the clipboard, and make the background of the signature the same as that in clipboard; with hopes the background will 'blend' into the pdf.

RE: change background of transparent png to that of pdf
Thank you for the reply!

Followed the suggested steps but got lost here:
"- use Color/Color to alpha with white (it will only applies to background and logo border)"

I did the original scanned signature steps from youtube video.
Create A Digital Version of Your Signature.
Maybe there was a missing step?

Do you have a preferred link for doing the entire 'transparent' scanned signature step-by-step?
