What do you mean by "Image Signatures"?

Many images found on the internet are copyright, and if they have the artists signature on them then they cannot be removed.

If the images are not yours then you will still have to consider the legality of what you intend, eg copyright, but if you own the images then I found this;

Good luck. It seems you may need professional software, and some learning is required.
