View Full Version : Drop Shadow Effect

I'm trying to create a drop shadow effect with rounded corner rectangles. Please review these images, and let me know if I have achieved the desired effect:


It doesn't look right to me, but maybe I've looked at it too many times.

this is almost there, but if you want to be really picky, it looks to me like the radius on the shadow's bottom right corner is not the same radius as the object. So the object wouldn't physically make that shadow if you know what i mean.

I'll try to explain it more clearly if thats too hard to understand :)

Thanks for the reply. I changed the radius to a bigger font to get more blur, because it didn't look right with the same radius. I will go change it back for comparison.

I updated the page to show the comparison between the 2 radii.


It looks better with a larger radius to me. Giving them identical radii (10) doesn't really look like a shadow in the southeast corner. See what you think.

Any opinions would be appreciated.

cool, I think 10 looks more "right" but I'd say they're pretty much the same anyway

Ok thanks for your review.
