Feathering a Black Border


Recommended Posts

Find the "drop shadow" plugin and turn up the blur radius

I downloaded the drop shadow plugin but how do I get my shadow to reach the edge of the page? The width of the shadow is about 2cm and I need it to be about 10.

Edit: If I untick keep original image it reaches the end of the page but then I cannot get it to feather as much as I would like.

you're looking for a really thick edge then o.o In that case, duplicate the layer and use the brightness and contrast adjustment to make the bottom layer completely black. Then, run outline object until you get an outline 5cm thick. Use gaussian blur to get the desired results.
