[By Design] Drop Shadow - Will Not Cast White Shadow

Recommended Posts

I'm designing a watermark, and part of the process I used in another program involved creating a white drop shadow on one side of the image and a black drop shadow on the opposite side (usually at 135 degrees for the white and 315 for the black). No problems here creating the black drop shadow, but the white shadow does not work at all.

Hi Smee Again,

This isn't a bug. By default the Outer Shadow Layer Effect is set to use a Multiply Blend Mode and when you multiply white with the colour below you always get the colour below. If you change the Blend Mode to Normal, it will act as a regular colour and appear.
