    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script> 
    <link type="text/css" href="//" rel="stylesheet"> 
    <script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="asset/jquery.signature.min.js"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="asset/jquery.signature.css">
        .kbw-signature { width: 400px; height: 200px;}
        #sig canvas{
            width: 100% !important;
            height: auto;
<div class="container">
    <form method="POST" action="upload.php">
        <h1>PHP Signature Pad Example -</h1>
        <div class="col-md-12">
            <label class="" for="">Signature:</label>

            <button id="clear">Clear Signature</button>
            <textarea id="signature64" name="signed" style="display: none"></textarea>
        <button class="btn btn-success">Submit</button>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var sig = $('#sig').signature({syncField: '#signature64', syncFormat: 'PNG'});

    $folderPath = "upload/";
    $image_parts = explode(";base64,", $_POST['signed']);
    $image_type_aux = explode("image/", $image_parts[0]);
    $image_type = $image_type_aux[1];
    $image_base64 = base64_decode($image_parts[1]);
    $file = $folderPath . uniqid() . '.'.$image_type;
    file_put_contents($file, $image_base64);
    echo "Signature Uploaded Successfully.";
