Use of dropshadow in photoshop

I was trying to make something in photoshop. Well, something like this

Try tweaking the settings of the drop shadow. There are settings on the drop shodow dialog box where you can adjust the angle and the distance of the shadow with respect to the main object, as well as the spread.

If you set the angle to 90 degrees that should do it…
