using (var signer = new PdfDocumentSigner("Document.pdf"))
    // Create a PKCS#7 signature:
    Pkcs7Signer pkcs7Signature = new Pkcs7Signer("Signing Documents//certificate.pfx", "123", 

    // Retrieve all signed form fields:
    var signedFields = signer.GetSignatureFieldNames(false);

    // Clear the first signature field:

    // Apply a new signature to this form field:
    var santuzzaSignature = new PdfSignatureBuilder(pkcs7Signature, signedFields[0]);

    // Specify image and signer information:
    santuzzaSignature.SetImageData(File.ReadAllBytes("Signing Documents//SantuzzaValentina.jpg"));
    santuzzaSignature.Location = "Australia";
    santuzzaSignature.Name = "Santuzza Valentina";
    santuzzaSignature.Reason = "I Agree";
    santuzzaSignature.CertificationLevel = PdfCertificationLevel.FillFormsAndAnnotate;

    // Sign and save the document:
    signer.SaveDocument("SignedDocument.pdf", santuzzaSignature);
