Shadow Photoshop Extension



Add shadow for text, regular (raster) layers, smart-objects with this easy to use Photoshop extension.

  • Supported layer types: text, smart-objects or regular layers
  • Choose angle (set manually or use “Sun position” option), scale, blur (shadow dispersion), opacity, color.
  • Auto-updates in almost real-time

Panel UI Controls:

  • Angle: The angle of the shadow (1 – 359)
  • Scale: The length of the shadow (1 – 100). It’s a relative value based upon the object size and it varies from shadow angle. Sharp angles make longer shadows.
  • Blur: shadow dispersion amount in pixels (1 – 100)
  • Opacity: The opacity of the shadow (1 – 100)
  • Color: The color of the shadow. Usually outside on a sunny day shadows tend to have a bluish tint.
  • Sun Position: It’s a feature that calculates the angle of the shadow based on the relative position of the object from the Sun (point created using the Pen tool in Photoshop).
  • Auto-update: Triggers the shadow creation process when one of the above parameters are changed. It makes it easier to get a desired look of the shadow.

Bonus feature: Shadow parameters are saved in the current session of the Photoshop even if the panel is closed and re-opened later.
