Photoshop :: Layers And Drop Shadows

Apr 27, 2006

Layer > I have a cat on grass, with a layer mask to give just the cat.
Layer > Underneath is a layer with just an orangey box on white.

I want a cat on the orangey box, with a shadow, all on a white background.

Having applied a drop shadow to the mask layer, it goes on the background which I don't want.

How do I mask it off? ................

Photoshop :: Drop Shadows

Apr 23, 2004

I found great use with the Drop Shadow ability. Especially when used with text; a nice soft, lighty blurred drop shadow would do wonders for the overall image.

But too many times do I see graphics with that ugly, heavy, and greatly offset dropshadow. Sure enough it actually DETRACTS the realism from the image.

Photoshop :: Drop Shadows

Oct 14, 2008

I don't get drop shadows. I can apply a drop shadow to an object on a layer, then if I apply a drop shadow to another item on another layer the drop shadow on the first item is changed to be the same as the new drop shadow that I am applying to the second object/layer.

Why does a new drop shadow, on a different layer, affect a previous drop shadow on a separate layer? How can I apply different drop shadows to different layers?

Photoshop :: How To Make Drop Shadows Look Same

Feb 21, 2013

I have several images of different sizes that I need to put drop shadows on. The thing is, I need all of the drop shadows to look the same. When I plug in the same options for the drop shadows, they all come out looking different. Is there some math I can do to make them look the same?

Photoshop :: Double Drop Shadows?

Oct 1, 2008

I'm trying to make a file have a drop shadow appearing on both sides. So, naturally I duplicated the layer & flipped it. This flipped the drop shadow underneat. Undo. I manually changed the drop shadow on the new layer to point the other direction. The layer beneath again followed suit.

Photoshop :: Antialiasing And Drop Shadows

Apr 28, 2006

am working with an older CS Version.

I have purchased several vector images. I want to know how to apply an antialias and a drop shadow to the edges of the image.

So far, I have taken the original image to Photo Editor and made the white background transparent (this is the only way I know how to do this).

But when I take the .gif file to photoshop - because the image is on a transparent rectangular background, I can only seem to antialias and drop shadow the edges of the rectangle! How do I 'get into' the actual image to play with it?

Photoshop :: Enable Text Drop Shadows?

Jun 22, 2013

In CS6, I tried this option with the lightest UI color (and with other UI colors), but I could not see the effect of this option on the texts of panels on the UI.
I still can not see the effect of it in CC,Am I looking at the wrong place ... it is controlling the drop shadows of the panel titles, isn't it?

Photoshop :: Drop Shadows With Alpha Channels

Aug 25, 2005

im trying something very basic on Photoshop 7.

I'm creating a text layer, and then applying a simple drop shadow to it. but when i create an alpha channel it ignores the dropshadow and only creates the alpha for the basic text.

i know its possible using the "magic wand" but i have to apply this to over 100 different *.psd files so want to be able to easily automate it..

at present to create an alpha channel i use CTRL + the relevant text Layer, then go to CHANNELS + SAVE SELECTION AS CHANEL

Photoshop :: How To Drop Shadows Without Banding For Offset Printing

Jul 11, 2013

I like to make drop shadows under our products on our brochures. While they look great on screen, they suffer from banding on the printed pieces via offset printing. Here's how I make them now in CS6:
Create a layer under the main image.On this layer use Rectangle Marquee tool to create box in location of desired shadow.Hit Shift + F5 and Fill with Black.Deselect the black filled box.Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and select a radius of 40-80 depending on the size of the image.Go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur and select a distance of 125 -250 depending on the size of the image. Also select appropriate angle to match image. 

I've talked to my printer and they said this is fine but they also said to make sure I'm filling the box with only K and not RGB (which I am) and to adjust opacity so it's below 25%. The problem is when I set the opacity of the shadow layer to 25%, the shadows are barely visible. This is not what I want. I want a nice dark shadow under the main portion of the product and the fading out to nothing. The way I do it now looks great on screen so how do I get it to look great on paper?

Photoshop :: Drop Shadows Show Waves When Blurring In Cmyk

Aug 2, 2013

Any else out there illustrating custom drop shadows may have encountered this.  If I do a hard drop shadow ro in RGB does not happen as much. When I convert to cmyk happens more.
Have had some success by rather than going form 0,0,0,0, to 1,1,1,1,, I curve correct to from 0,0,0,0 to 0001 then to 1,0,0,1. I do not think this is a monitor collaboration issue, as have had this problem forever on so many different systems.
Below is a screenshot (i darkened the right half so you could see better). 

I tried many different techniques all same result. Brushing with a 0% hard large brushgaussian blurring default black on a layer set to 11% opacity running all the blurs over and over again using eraser set to 0% hard adn large brush feathering a selection spatter filter in rgb mode, then covert to cmykadding noise .

Photoshop :: AI Smart Object With Drop Shadows Not Working Properly In CS6

Jun 11, 2012

I am working with vectors from AI as smartobjects in PS. In CS6 the dropshadow effect started to look weird.It's to dark, offset and to big. If I scale the smartobject in PS the dropshadow changes, too. But it's never as it's supposed to be.Here is a screenshot. Left is AI, middle PS CS5, right CS6. URL....
Is there a setting I have change to make PS CS6 handle smartobjects with effects nicely again?!

CorelDRAW X5 :: Printing Drop Shadows In X5

Jun 12, 2012

I've learned from the forums that it's best to separate drop shadows from their objects for printing, and even better to then convert them to bitmaps. Since this is a very old solution, I was wondering if X5 has a way to do this to all drop shadows on a page (or all in a document) instead of having to do it manually one by one.

How do Corelians get around losing the editability of the shadows with this workaround?

CorelDRAW X4 :: Transparencies And Drop Shadows

Mar 31, 2011

I'm having problems with transparencies and drop shadows when publishing to PDF. Look at the attached picture: the text beneath the transparent shape looks jagged; same with drop shadows. This happens only with PDF/X-3 format; I would choose Acrobat 6 or 8 format, if I could, but that is the file format the printer service wants.

Is there a way out?

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Drop Shadows Export For Web

Mar 1, 2012

I am not a master of Photo-Paint, I use Draw for most tasks, but here I think Photo-Paint would be the right tool. I want to resample an image and then add a 7 px drop shadow to it and then export it as a PNG for web (transparent drop shadow). The problem I encounter is at the export stage, as the whole paper size is exported, not just the object selected, as is the case in Draw. Is there any other option than to place the object in the upper left corner (coordinates 0, 0 ) resize the paper size to fit and then export?

CorelDRAW X6 :: X6.2 Colour Replace Misses Drop Shadows

Feb 27, 2013

Test file dropshadow_replace_demo.cdr contains a yellow rectangle with a black drop shadow, all in RGB,

Run Edit > Find and Replace with the options Replace Objects > Replace a colour model > Any colour model, replace with CMYK.

The rectangle will be converted to CMYK but the drop shadow remains stubbornly as RGB.

Of course there are third party replacers which are easier to use and probably work better, but the built in replacer ought to work properly on all objects that CorelDraw supports and not just some of them.

Illustrator :: CS6 (Mac) Crashes When Opening Large Documents With Drop Shadows

Aug 2, 2012

I have a Macbook Pro ver. 10.6.8 i7 Core, 8 Gb Ram, and I am running Adobe Illustrator CS6.
I have a document that is 18" x 42" and contains drop shadows. It was created using CS6. When I apply a graphic style (gradient and drop shadow) It has a progress bar that says "Drop Shadow" and it fills up and freezes. I recreated the document, and I am having the same issue repeatedly.
In order to do what I needed, I had to ungroup the letters recieving the graphic style and apply it to each letter individually. If I try applying it to more than one object, the freeze happens again.
I saved the file I created, and now I can not open it. On load it has a progress bar that says "Drop Shadow" and it fills up and freezes.
I can open the same document in CS4 on the same system with no issues, it takes less than 5 seconds to load.

Photoshop :: Rendering Multiple Layers - Shadows Screwed Up

Why takes the rendering of only 1 layer with 3 letters (incl shadows) over 37 days on a pc with a  3770K, 16gb ddr3 1600, 550/550 SSD and GTX670 2GB....this can't be right....
and when I want to render multiple layers, will it be possible to render them at once instead of layer by layer? If I merge them somehow the shadows are screwed up....
