Photoshop Shadow Effect
Create drop shadow in Photoshop with this free action. Photoshop shadow effect for text, shapes and images.
With this free Photoshop action you can add a shadow effect for a text, an object, a person, etc.
To give depth to a text in an image we use the Drop Shadow layer style. But to create a realistic cast shadow effect for objects, persons, the standard Drop Shadow just doesn’t cut it.
How to Draw a Shadow of a Person in Photoshop?
To draw a shadow of a person in Photoshop, first we have to duplicate the layer.
After that, we have to transform/distort the image to create the realistic shadow in perspective.
Add a black Color Overlay or use a gradient shadow (#000000 with opacity 100% and #000000 with opacity 70%). Reducing the opacity of this layer and adding a Gaussian Blur effect also help create a real shadow.
