How do you do a shadow on Paint.net?

Recommended Posts

if you're referring to the shadow behind and to the left of the book:

  • Make sure the image you want shadowed is on a layer of it's own
    duplicate that layer
    set it to black & white
    set brightness & contrast to maximum negative
    use octagonal/quad reshape/matte plugin to shape your shadow
    gaussian blur the layer to your liking
    drop the opacity to your liking
    move the layer down, so the shadow layer is behind the object layer
