I love the look of the shadow behind the elements or type on the predone templates I've gotten. I would love to know how to do this on my own homemade ones.

Can anyone tell me how or point me to a tutorial on here (or anywhere)??

I'm hoping this isn't one of those "Best Kept Secrets" of the pros, LOL

Nope, not a secret! But, it will make a difference what program you use. In PSE, you will find drop shadows under the effects tab above the layers palette and then it's under drop shadows. Click on the shadow you want to use. Make sure the layer you want shadowed is selected, then click on "apply." You can adjust the levels by double clicking on the fx icon that will now show on the shadowed layer.

There are lots of shadows you can buy and install too, if you don't like the program defaults. Jen Martakis has some called subtle shadows that are nice for those of us intimidated by too much shadow! HTH

Thanks! I use PSE and that's what I needed to know...I tried to figure it out myself in the past, but didn't get the results I was looking for. I'll try this and see if it is it Thanks!
