Drop Dhadows for Digi Noobs

I have just begun the journey down the Digital path. It’s a long winding road filled with tempting digital kits and loads of freebies! When I first started digital scrapbooking I didn’t know about drop shadows.  Here is a page I created the other day. The page has not had drop shadows applied and it looks a little flat.

Since I’m no expert on the topic, I’ve downloaded a free set of styles which add drop shadows to elements from Megan Turnridge Designs. I like that these styles have different settings based on the size of the element and Megan has set the light to come in at the same angle so if you use the set it all works together.

Adding a few shadows, really adds some drama to the page, don’t you think?

The styles above are for Photoshop CS if you use a different program, a Google search should yield actions or styles that will work with your program. To install styles in CS4, simply follow these simple directions. Happy Digi Scrappin'! Facebook
