Hi

I’ve drawn a yellow post-it note using Photoshop CS. To give it a more realistic look I would like to add a drop shadow to it. But… I don’t want the drop shadow to be even. Basically I don’t want a drop shadow at the top of the post-it but I want it to become gradually larger at the bottom so it give the impression that the post it note is stuck down at the top and is flapped up a little a the bottom.

Any ideas anyone?

Best regards and thank you for any help.

Make your drop shadow the way we did it before we had fancy filters and layer styles to automate the process.

Duplicate your post-it layer and fill the bottom of the two with black. Apply gausian blur and adjust opacity as desired. Now you have a shadow on a layer under the post-it. Use transform to adjust the size/shape of the shadow as you wish.

There is a lot more flexibility in the "old fashioned" way of doing some things.

Sonars:

I have one I downloaded a while back from a website (possibly even Adobe’s or Apple’s) but don’t remember the address.

The image is available as both .psd and .png (it was downloaded as a .sit compressed file in case you prefer this format as well).

The post-it note looks really good and I usually add it to Keynote presentations (Apple’s improved version of PowerPoint) to highlight something special that needs attention.

Let me know if you are interested and I can post it to the group or e-mail it to you.

Best regards,

Joseph
