Drop Shadow with background texture
Jan 12, 2010

Hey everyone I am hoping you can help me out with this.

I am constructing my first wedding album. It is the traditional matted style. The pages are 10x10. I want to have some of the pages be a 10x10 print with the base being a solid color with a texture with a 5x7 picture in the middle with a drop shadow on the photo. I need help with most of this....lol

1. any suggestions on textures (how to make them or someplace to get free ones)

2. How do I get the drop shadow on the photo to display on the background color

3. any other suggestions on this technique?

I am using CS3 and have a good understanding of layers but for some reason I can't make this work. I will try to make an example for suggestions.

Thanks
