HELP drop shadows / animate gif?

Recommended Posts


I am totally NEW to paint.net-

but I am attempting to replace a macromedia fireworks drop shadow effect-

I am familiar with FW and photoshop "ish" but not paint.net.

Yes I have d/l the plug in and I see the option for drop shadow-

but it doesn't seem to apply to the object- yes I have created another layer...

what am I missing?

I would like the image to appear as it did before -


with a variable width and variable gradient shade of black/ grey.

ALSO- anyone know if I can create an animated gif in paint.net-

as is shown here:

Ensure your canvas size is a little bigger to fit the shadow in, also be sure to make the area where the shadow will be transparent.

Also make sure the colour isnt the same as the background layer, like white on white, because you wont see it. Id help you with screenshots but im not on PC.

I know next to nothing about animation so i cant help you there :(

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
