  • How to straighten shadow

    Hello all,

    This might come across as a stupid question but does anyone know how to straighten the shadow underneath this print?

    Apparently it can be done without using the 'drop shadow technique' but I just don't know how.

    Can anyone advise?

    Many thanks

      Strange? Can't figure out what this guy is up to, but I don't think it has anything to do with shadows.

        I can't make sense of his question: The shadow? There are two shadows. I think he's one of those phantoms who swoops into a forum, asks for help, and then vanishes in the wind.

          There is a famous psych experiment where subjects are asked, "If farmer Brown has 26 sheep and 5 cows, how old is farmer Brown?".

          The psychologist then make great sport of analyzing how people answer the question, and deduce their personality from the results. There is, of course, no answer. But some people come up with one anyway, and defend it strongly. Others clearly state there is no possible answer. Many simply refuse to respond.

          I wonder if this OP has no interest in shadows or even retouching, but instead is experimenting with how people answer.

            How much drop shadow?
            by Lynda99
            I really like earrings floating on white, or maybe with just a tiny bit of shadow at the bottom of the lower earring, but several have told me to anchor more distinctly.

            I've looked at the jewelry sites that were recommended as having very good technique, and the shadows vary drastically...

            Eliminating shadow with underlying detail
            by One4UAll
            There is a shadow just below the two uprights in the door latch, caused by the overhead sun shining on the latch's handle that protrudes directly toward the viewer, so that the depth of handle is flat, but the shadow of it is distracting (I think). I took this photo with the idea of a flat abstract....
