    Adding Text Shadowing in PSP 7

    Seems like it should be simple enough to do, but I
    am hitting a block. I have created a banner with red
    background, 3 different text vector objects in one
    layer, trying to add shadowing - can anyone help?
    I have attached the file for reference.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Thumbs up Vectors No Good!



    You cannot add shadows with vectors, you must change them to "floating", all you have to do is double clikc on them, and change them, then add a shadow. You will not longer be able to edit the size except by "standards sizes" but it is a small price to pay. See ya later!

    Just remember, all the "effects" need to be used while something is "floating" or have the dotted lines around it.

    Thats all my spiel! See ya later man, and good luck!

    Angry a different approach

    A diiferent approach than what John wrote above would be to get your vector text play withit and set it to whatever final appearance you need it to be. ..eg Curved text, skewed text reversed etc Then at that point convert that layer to a raster layer and simply go and apply the drop shadow effects. Basically both methods work and the point here is that some effects can only be applied on raster objects or vector objects alone etc. Good luck!
