Start with a normal Drop Shadow. Play a little with the settings (Don’t forget to use Spread). Right-click the Effect Layer and select Create Layer (Ignore any warning dialogue). Merge the new Drop Shadow layer with your white background (Or create a Smart Object from them). If you like you can tweak the shadow a little bit with Curves or Levels to make ...

If I'm understanding your question correctly, then the effect that you are looking for can be achieved by creating a white object with a drop shadow and then setting the whole thing to MULTIPLY / DARKEN / OVERPRINT. The result would look something like this:

There are some aproaches, but my favorite is to keep all that on vectors. For the shadow duplicate your object, asign it diferent colors (preferible transparencies) and use the blend tool. You can put over the original object. With this method you can control the direction, longitude and intensity of the shadow. The tradeoff is that you, in some cases, ...

The drop shadow tool has limitations. When you need custom shadows you have to draw them. If you draw the shadow as a shape and apply effects like glow or feather to soften it you can save the image as a transparent .PNG and this can be used on any background. The drop shadow tool only draws a shadow parallel to a shape and from one direction. To make ...

Uncheck the "Use Global Light" checkbox in the Drop Shadow dialog. If it's checked, then any change you make will be reflected in any other drop shadow, bevel and emboss, satin, etc. that has it checked.

Add multiple strokes via the Appearance Panel. (click the image to see it larger) Start with the object Add a thicker, white stroke under the object add a "shadow" colored stroke under the white stroke. Choose Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform from the menu with the last stroke highlighted in the Appearance Panel Adjust the Vertical ...

If you are using it in Illustrator I would : get the main shape that is part of that rocket. With the same color, you are using there. copy and past in the same place (cmd+shift+V) twice. offset one of them to the left and use the pathfinder tool as shown in the images The result should be a shape like this Then set that object to a transparency mode '...

You can create Graphic Styles within Illustrator by using the Graphic Styles Panel (Window > Graphic Styles). The purpose of Graphic Styles is to quickly apply the same appearance to multiple objects or to create a library of commonly used appearance settings. In function, they are similar to the "Styles" panel within Photoshop (but not the actual Layer ...

When you apply effects that have a light source, you have the option of using a global light source. That global light source is always the same for all layers. You can edit the global light source indepentantly of your layers by going to Layer → Layer Style → Global Light. If you don't want to use the global light source simply uncheck Use Global Light in ...

The drop shadow appears on both objects because the anchored object is part of the main text frame object. Instead of applying the effect to the text frame object, apply it to the fill. Since the fill is contained in the text frame object, and not the anchored object, the shadow will appear only behind the text frame. (Note that this only works if the text ...

After applying the drop shadow to the rectangle, go to filter general settings in the filter editor dialog. Change the values for co-ordinates x & y which displaces the top left origin point of the rectangle. Similarly adjust the dimensions correspondingly to retain the same width & height for the shadow. The values specified in the image is the ...

Apply a drop-shadow as in your second example. Go to the blending options for the drop-shadow effect. Tick the box which says: "Layer mask hides effects". You can now use selection tools to select the inner drop-shadow circle of your layer With this inner drop shadow selected, you can mask it out. Invert the mask, if necessary with Ctrl / Cmd+i

I can't find anything regarding Android shadows on the Google design docs now, but there was apparently once upon a time a list of the values for Adobe Illustrator, but they seem to have taken it down. There are a lot of resources that list 5 different shadow levels. The Google design docs link to the Polymer docs that say: Note: The material design ...

For GIF the drop shadow is going to be complicated for two reasons: The drop shadow on your PNG relies on partial opacity to blend the shadow with the page background. But the GIF format doesn't support that, in GIF the opacity a pixel is either completely opaque or completely transparent. You can at best simulate a blend to a background of a specific color ...

Simply enlarge your document, add a background color as the background color where the GIF will be placed, then add your shadow to your GIF. This is the only way. If your output is for the web, you can add a CSS property to it and will look better than exporting the shadow in the GIF directly (will be better quality).

You can make a bent shadow: 1.Your paper or photo 2.to 4. A bent black shape of the approximately same size is made. In 3 Envelope distort with warp > Arc was applied. The result was too wide, but it was dragged narrower. With direct selection tool the curvature is easily adjustable even after phase 5. As well one can draw the wanted shape with the pen or ...

Seemingly this all is already in G.Falla's answer, so upvote it if you see this useful Draw the shadows as separate black low opacity blurred objects, do not use effects. You can place the shadows freely in the objects stack:

I created this example as per the settings below. Essentially a large faint drop shadow with a smaller but darker drop shadow over the top.

Alright there's a bunch of ways to do this but here's how I might approach it in Photoshop (very rough / quick job) Start with whatever font you want to use and give it some background color to help while working on it: Now you're going to use an outer glow for the background. The key for that is to change the blend to either Darken or Multiply otherwise ...

Under the "Save for Web" option there is a checkbox "clip to artboard" that will do it. Or if you are saving as a vector, eps or svg as an option to "use artboard"

Combine both objects into the same layer or smart object and apply the shadow to that instead. Update: To keep the shadow from the top object on the bottom, in addition to the steps above, duplicate the top object with shadow, and put into a layergroup. Now apply the lower object as a layer mask to that layer group (set that area white on black background ...

Effects (all effects, not only drop shadows) are cumulative, they aren't only applied to the base object but the output of all styles and effects applied before—so this is working as intended. The way to get around this is to apply your drop shadow to something different. The easiest option is probably to use the appearance panel to duplicate the stroke or ...

Google Slides has caught up and you can now add drop shadow to images and shapes from the format menu:

You change the Effect. If it's visible in the Appearance Panel, click it. You can then change the settings.... Opacity, X, and Y offset should be self-explanatory. The Blur setting controls the overall size.

I'm not a fan of the raster effects in Illustrator. I prefer to build objects as concise and scalable as possible. And while I don't mind some effects turning to raster upon saving and exporting, I prefer the edit ability and flexibility of the Appearance Panel and multiple fills/strokes over using things with the built in Gaussian Blur (such as the Drop ...

This is fairly easy to do with overlapping objects. It's not something I'd try with a single object. I'd never use the drop shadow effect and I'd never consider masks necessary. Once you have the two circles aligned, it's really just a matter of duplicating them, cutting and removing segments, then applying a gradient to one piece. Using Object > Path &...

@Seph Reed: The light logic as I understand it is to quantify a simple stylistic guide to achieve both ambient occlusion shadowing and direct cast shadows, which combine to indicate a "height" in "z" space off the screen towards the user, to help differentiate overlapping elements in agreement with this styleguide section.

Unclear in your question what app you're using, so I screencapped both Adobe Illustrator and Affinity Designer to show this applies to both for certain, and I'm pretty sure Inkscape and Xara and Sketch as well; It's all down to the draw order - which in Adobe Illustrator and Affinity Designer shows up clearly in the Layers palette. If you select your ...
