Drop shadows were key to making this month's template appear to be 3D. Notice how the "distance" is increased for the drop shadow.
- Select the layer of the item you have added a drop shadow to.
- Then, Click on *Effects* icon and the *Effects* palette will open
- Go to the item with the palette open, then click down on the shadow and move manually to position.
- For the most part primary shadows are position in one angle. However, there are times when you may want an item to be shadowed differently to standout. This creates depth + dimension to digital layouts by making elements appear airy and realistic.
