    Hey. I got this PDF wich Im suposed to sign and send back by email, but I dont know how to create a digital signiature. I dont have a scanner or printer, so I have to do everything on the computer.

    Wich applications do I need? I can take a photo of my signature in a piece of paper and send it to the computer. But then, how do I paste the signature on the PDF document to send back?

    The new "Preview" app on the Mac has a signature feature. You go into markup mode then there is an icon that looks like an S. You click that and you can manage your signatures and pick one to place. It will then take a photo using the built in isight camera or other webcam. It is a pretty neat feature I stumbled across.

    The Digital Signature feature was introduced in Lion. You won't be able to use that method in Snow Leopard. Adobe Reader can work, but it's much more involved, so you'd have to have a graphics program that you could use to take a scanned version and remove the background to make it transparent.
