A quick shadow tip

In my travels on the web, I stumbled across this video at Scrapper’s Guide on installing actions in Photoshop Elements, which comes with a cool Custom Shadow action and a PDF manual!

It creates a shadow on a new layer, which allows you to fully customise it to you heart’s content, a feature usually missing from Elements. You may like to change the blending mode to multiply to get to match your other shadows that use the built in drop shadow.
Here’s a quick look at what it can do:
All the shadows here are generated using this action and then modified using the smudge tool. I used Monica’s goodies from Songbird Avenue's Toys in the Attic kit (No longer available).

Scrapper’s guide is pretty cool site with some free video tutorials here.
