Creating distorted shadow effects can be done real easy with a few steps in photoshop. Great for when the drop shadow panel can’t give you the effect you’re looking for. Here I wanted to make my title look like it was standing on the beach – so adding a distorted shadow was the way to go.
Here’s a video tutorial on how I did it. (Apologies Elements users again – I will have my elements sorted for the next tutorial).
Here’s some written steps also if you prefer:
7. Reorder your layers so that your new shadow layer is underneath your title.
8. Next is personal preference. As you don’t have the drop shadow panel to adjust size, spread, blend mode, opacity – you must adjust these yourself.
So that’s it. Hope you enjoyed my tutorial. Please let me know your thoughts and queries in the comments. Thanks for reading.
