Drop Shadow Making Using Photoshop

How to Make Drop Shadow  using Photoshop  Desire

 

 

 

In today’s post we will show you a part of how to edit in Adobe Photoshop in a fun way. We are starting from the basics so that even the beginners can understand. So, for those who already know about the basics, please bear with us for a moment

 

 

 

Photoshop is a powerful image editing software created by the famous John Warnock, the co-founder of Adobe Systems Inc. We can use this software to edit images, in many ways, many colors using its interesting effects to present them in an amazing way. Without wasting any more time discussing let us get right to it and see how to create Drop shadow using Photoshop.

 

What we would need to start

 

Adobe Photoshop Software (We are using version cc2018 below). You can download the software and install it.Minimum Requirements for good performance a Hard Drive with 95 Mb space, 64 Mb Ram, 24-bit Video Display Card. (Our regular computers are much faster than this, so no need to worry) finally the 2 images that you have selected to work on (we have taken some selected images).

 

Before we start

 

First, let me introduce you to some of the tools and terms of Photoshop or else it will be difficult to understand. Remember there are hundreds of tools and each has different uses. It will not be possible to mention all the names of the tolls in one post. So, just naming the tools that we will be needing today to complete our work.

Please open Adobe Photoshop after you have completed installing it. You can see in the below image, the toolbox, title bar, menu bar, etc are indicated.

Now let us get familiar with the tools inside the toolbox that we will need today.

 

 

Using Tools

Using Tools

 

 

Move tool is used to move an image. In order to place the images that you will work with you need to use the mouse to click on this tool. Eraser Tool is used to erasing the unnecessary part of the image. Basically works like an eraser. Press ] or [ in your keyboard to increase or decrease the size of the eraser.Blur Tool is used to making a part of an image blunt or blur. For example you can use this on the corners of an image to decrease its sharpness.Pen Tool is used to cutting out a part of the image based on our liking.

Work Details:

Firstly, we need to open our example image in Adobe Photoshop.

Then we will use the pen tool to create a path and separate the image from the background.

 

 

Path Example

Path Example

 

 

In order to select our image we will keep the entire image in Path 1 and we will path the shadow in Path 2 like the above image.

 

To create the shadow we need to select Path 1 and press Ctrl+Enter on our keyboard and it will be selected then we will use feather 0.5 and press Ctrl+J then our main image will appear in a new layer. Then we will use the same system in the shadow path and use feather 10-15 (The amount of feather depends on the quality of the image, if the image has a low resolution then we have to use 6-10 feather and if the mage has high resolution then use 10-15 feather) just like the below image.

Then just like before press Ctrl+J that will bring the shadow of the image in a new layer and we have to take a solid color layer under this two layers. Now we will select erase tool for Layer 2 and nicely remove the unnecessary parts of the image.
