How do I add a black shadow to a photo?

Answered by Cody Janus

To add a black shadow to a photo, you can follow these steps:

1. Start by uploading your photo. You can either click on the “Upload” button or simply drag and drop your image into the editor. Make sure your photo is in JPG or PNG format.

2. Once your photo is uploaded, you’ll see it displayed in the editor. Now, it’s time to add the shadow effect. Look for the menu bar located above your image.

3. In the menu bar, you’ll find various options and buttons. Look for the one that says “Shadows” and click on it. This will open up the shadow settings for your image.

4. Within the shadow settings, you’ll see options to adjust the shadow color, position, and blur. To make the shadow black, select a dark color from the color palette or enter the specific color code for black (#000000).

5. Now, let’s adjust the position of the shadow. You’ll see sliders labeled “X” and “Y”. These sliders control the horizontal and vertical position of the shadow, respectively. Move the sliders to position the shadow where you want it to appear on your photo.

6. To adjust the intensity or softness of the shadow, you can use the “Blur” slider. Moving the slider to the right will increase the blur, creating a softer shadow, while moving it to the left will decrease the blur, creating a sharper shadow.

7. Take your time to experiment with different settings until you achieve the desired shadow effect. You can always preview the changes before applying them to your photo.

8. Once you’re satisfied with the shadow effect, click on the “Apply” or “Save” button to save the changes to your photo.

That’s it! You have successfully added a black shadow to your photo. Feel free to play around with the settings and get creative with different shadow colors and positions.
