A little more on shadows in Photoshop. If you wish to produce an "All Round Shadow" in Photoshop, this too is easy after you have spent hours searching a solution.
As with the previous post on Photoshop Drop Shadow, this is pretty much the same procedure. Only at the end do the settings differ. Here's a quick 'n' dirty walk-through.
Fire up Photoshop, open a new blank canvas image. The canvas needs to be bigger than the graphic you want drop-shadowed. Open the graphic you want shadowed.
Ctrl-A > Ctrl-C.
Go to the blank canvas and paste the image.
Ctrl-V to paste image on canvas.
Photoshop should center the image on the canvas.
This creates a new layer. Check this on the Layer Panel, normally on the right.
Double click the new layer to launch a Layer Style properties box.
Select Drop Shadow.
Then set Distance to zero. This is important and produces the "All Round Shadow" we are after.
You can mess around with a few of other the settings such as Spread, Size, Angle, Opacity and Color.
You get a preview to see how the changes affect your image.
Select what ya like, Click OK and save your changes to disk.
