Shadows are very important in any picture because they are essential to the impression if Vitality. They are also good for character and texture. We offer different types of effects, and the effects range from simple reflection to effective shadow drop.

  1. Drop Shadow

In drop show, the object is slightly raised over its background and is almost hanging on the free air. In many cases drop shadow makes the object look like its faint. With our advanced mixing and softening techniques, we use create shadows which look almost the same as the original object. Our experts also have the ability to change the shadow size also change the angle of the shadow, and the hardness of the shadow drop to make it look awesome.

Utilizing propelled mixing and softening methods, we make drop shadows that precisely copy their characteristic partners, with the reward that they can be effectively controlled to make a scope of varieties. As an outcome, we can without much of a stretch alter the shadow estimate, the point of the shadow, the hardness of the drop shadow, the shadow remove and the mistiness of the shadow.
