Yep, Drop Shadow, Object Shadow and Inner Shadow are all good. You can get some potentially useful shadow like effects from Object Bevel too.

 

I also like using the crudest 'solution' too if I want crisp shadows. I just copy the text to a new lower layer, convert it to b/w and raise the contrast to get solid black and simply offset that as required.

 

Just to be clear that does, of course, mean a new layer with a transparent background.

The easiest way I know to make something black is to use Hue/Saturation and set the Lightness all the way to the left (-100). Setting the control all the way to the right makes it white.

@TrueblueKiwi - Gidday & welcome to the forum :) 

 

Remember, you need to put your text on it's own transparent layer for these shadowing plugins to work. If you put your text on a layer with other elements (like a solid background) the plugin will not be able to find the edges of the letters ;)

It's all getting a bit shadowy ...

 

Nobody will ever be able to convince me that cats don't want to destroy us all ... but skinning only done metaphorically

 

 

Not all of us...they've got to have somebody to enslave, after all. It's not like the litter box cleans itself.

8 houses in my estate - 7 cats and guess who's garden they scratch up and use 😣

 

 

 

Typical of the furbrats. They've decided you belong to them and so does your land.

 

(Just because I love animals doesn't mean I don't see through their shenanigans. I don't walk directly under birds, for starters....)
