    Applying drop shadow brush in Photoshop 6

    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone could help me. I am developing a dance shoe
    website, and want to create a "realistic drop shadow" around each of the
    shoes. I understand that you can not use the images as a background as the
    shadow only works on layers, but after creating a new layer and pasting the
    image on, and then applying the brush, then gaussian blur, and reducing the
    opacity, I can't seem to get back to the clarity of my original image, so
    I'm obviously doing something wrong.

    Any help appreciated.

    Do you have Eye Candy perhaps? The drop shadow filter in Eye Candy is invaluable.

    the image of the shoe should be just one single layer

    click in the layers palette with right button and choose blending options - drop shadow is in there - it will automaticaly create another new layer for the effect

    once you have the desired effect (keep it subtle with drop shadows, and use a grey/blue for the shadow colour rather than black0 then choose File>save for web and save it as an optimised jpg
