What is the Drop Shadow?
Drop shadow service contains two basic terms to work on for a successful implementation. The terms are ‘Drop’ and ‘Shadow’. According to the Oxford dictionary, ‘Drop’ means “let or make (something) fall vertically”. And, ‘Shadow’ means “a dark area or shape produced by a body coming between rays of light and a surface”. The combination of these two terms comes as one in ‘Drop Shadow’. The theory is as explained but the implementation is digitalized in photographs. An artificial shadow that we add below the isolated subject is the drop shadow in photo editing.
How We DO Drop Shadow Creation?
Drop shadow photoshop operation is relevant to some matters of the subject we need to handle. The first thing is isolation. The subject should be without the background as the most basic condition. So, we separate the subject from the whole photograph and move forward to the next step. Then we place a solid-colored background especially a white one. Then we add the drop shadow following the subject. During the operation, we maintain the best match of the shadow to the subject. Shadow depth, spreading, angle, lighting direction, and all the issues we take care of properly. Also, we look for your instructions in this manner to meet your satisfaction.

Natural shadow services are another important part of drop shadow where we evaluate it as the original. Well, it becomes necessary to change the angle a little bit considering the cut-out. The subject may turn different after the isolation from the whole photograph. So, the shadow we need to add in a natural way should be different than the original one.
