Shape Drop Shadow

Shape Drop Shadow (Grayscale)

In: Filters/Effects



Performs the well-known "Drop Shadow" effect from other 2D image processing software, on an input black and white mask (for the grayscale version) or image with transparency (for the color version).

It differs from the Shadows effect in that it returns images with full transparency applied, making for a more complete effect similar to what you'd expect in other software.
