I've got a simple image slider on this site I'm doing. You can click through images, but I wanted it to really pop so I added a graphic element over top of the images to give some depth, like a folder piece of paper laying not he screen. I've worked on this for a while, and (I'm no graphic designer, but) I think it's beginning to look pretty cool...
The issue is that it detracts way too much from the images themselves, as cool as it is. Specifically the shadow in the middle of the photo.
If someone could put this through photoshop or tell me your ideas on how I could achieve a similar effect without it being such a distraction, help is MUCH appreciated. I'm no pro graphic designer, but I've used photoshop & pixelmator for years so I know my way around the software.
Here's the overlay graphic (in psd format): http://cl.ly/AyRR
And here's the image behind it (in jpeg format): http://cl.ly/AzG9
Thanks in advance! ~ Jax
