How to Create Custom Stamps in eDrawings

eDrawings does not provide a way to make the stamps, so you will have to create these in a photo editing software such as Adobe Photoshop, or a screengrab tool like Snagit. Supported file types for stamp images are PNG, TIF, GIF, JPEG, and BMP format. 

Note: eDrawings will support transparency in png, tif, and gif formats.

For this example, I created a 500 x 100 pixel image in Snagit that I will use as a watermark on my eDrawings file.
