Add a Drop Shadow for Drama

Here are some thoughts about how to use drop shadows more creatively:

  • The drop shadow can be a surprisingly simple means of making an image more interesting.
  • A drop shadow can be realistic, or can be presented as a simple, hard-edged gray tone.
  • Shadows can darken a mood or convey a look of sunshine.
  • Many software programs feature the ability to add a drop shadow to an image.

Use drop shadows to signify:

  • Light sources
  • Realistic images
  • Graphics
  • Flat images
  • Perspectives
  • Darkness
  • Light
