Thread: drop shadow for PiP image with CS3

  1. Default drop shadow for PiP image with CS3

    Hi there,

    I'm doing a PiP effect with some small (25%) images floating across a larger (100%) image. In FCP, you can put a drop shadow around these smaller images/boxes, to make them stand out from the background. I can't seem to find a similar effect in CS3 - I can do lots of things within the boxes/images, but not to the boxes themselves. I've tried a black border around it, but it's not the same. Any one know if it's possible?

    Many thanks.

    A drop shadow doesnt need some fancy button - any editor should be able to do this.

    Just make a blck box, blur borders, offset, place under the object, lock movememnt together.

    yeah, true. I thought of that as I was typing. but FCP has a setting to do it automatically, so I was wondering if CS3 did. That's all.

    Thanks.
