I have about a ton of screen shots that I need to convert to a design that has been used in the past on our sites.

All of the pictures are saved with a white background so that they could see the bevel and shadow effects. See example below. (Grey area is just screenshot)

enter image description here

I have added it in quotes so you can see the white background.

Is there a way to get the same bevel/shadow without the white background? I am trying to create a batch process to go through all of our stuff.

  • If you save as PNG you can save transparent images. The shadow on an object will then still be visible if placed on a lighter background.

1 Answer 1

  1. Open your image
  2. add a layer mask / shrink the image / crop the layer (but keep the image size)
  3. add your bevel effect and the shadow
  4. Save as a transparent PNG

Bonus: your shadow will be visible over backgrounds of any color, not only white anymore!
