[Pro] Place Drop Shadow on irregular shape

I have place drop shadow on several rectangular and square images in my site. I have several images with irregular shapes upon which I want to place a drop shadow. How can I accomplish this in Freeway?

If you use the Graphic>Path tool to draw your irregular shape then you can apply a shadow in the Graphic Item Inspector down in the Effects section under the paintbrush tab.

Thank you. I appreciate your response.

I’m sorry, I was not clear. What I want to do is outline an irregular shape in a photo and then apply a drop shadow.

In that case - draw your graphic path as per above and then import your pic into it.

Have another look at my example http://www.deltadesign.co/fw_examples/irregularshadow.html

Thanks Dave,

I’m beginning to feel illiterate as I’m not being really clear. but I’m trying to accurately outline an object in a photo, land then apply a drop shadow to that outlined object. I think I can only do that in Photoshop.

If you import one copy of the photo into a regular square box, and a second copy into an irregular (drawn in Freeway) box, and position them exactly one above the other, you can do this all within Freeway. If you set those two images to merge on output, the effect will be complete.

The old saying GIGO applies here

It does help for us to be able to answer a question as accurateley as possible if we have as much relevant information as you have.

You know what you want/mean but to us it has to be spelt (spelled?) out, we haven’t been sitting in front of your screen pondering as you have.

And (this applies to all posters) if you have a link to an online example please let us have it.

I know you replied to the wrong thread Joe but I got the message.

I didn’t mean to sound scolding - so I apologise if it came across that way :slight_smile:

There are other ways to hi-light an area of your picture and I have included another in the example I posted before at http://www.deltadesign.co/fw_examples/irregularshadow.html

If you need a sample document then let us know.
