Information about this image:
Original: Digital image rendered by LiquiFire
Adjustments: Standard post-processing. Image contains ICC color profile.
Note: The larger image has sufficient resolution to identify individual brushstrokes of the signature and place them partially in order. The vertical bar of the "F" was drawn before either horizontal bar; the top of the "S" was a separate stroke from the body, the "a" was composed of two distinct brushstrokes, the "e" was composed of a vertical line curved at the bottom, then completed with a curved stroke, and the underline was added last with a flourish.
Calibration: Targets
