Drop Shadow

Adding a drop shadow will make your product look as if it has been raised above whatever background it has been set against. The drop shadow technique can also give the object a ‘glow’ look. Drop shadow creation is a popular technique used when photos are being used to display products sold online.

Natural Shadow Creation Service

When a natural shadow is added to an image, the image is usually edited in a way that allows the object to appear as if it is casting a shadow against the background. When we edit your photos, we carefully select which direction the light is coming from, to create the perfect natural shadows for your photos. Objects in photos appear as if they are sitting on a surface, an effect commonly used for e-commerce photography.

Reflections and floating shadows

Floating reflections and floating shadows are another possibility to enhance the context and character of your photos. We’ll use a floating shadow to create the appearance that any object is floating above the area where the shadow appears. Other examples are reflections, such as a swimming pool. Floating shadows and reflections are often used on white backgrounds in e-commerce photos to really enhance the look and add context to the product. We understand the importance of creating the highest quality floating shadows, as they can look very strange and unnatural when done incorrectly.

Why do I need to add a shadow effect to my photos?

As discussed above, adding a shadow effect can improve the quality of your photos and make them look more realistic and professional. However, there are specific reasons why many people choose to add a shadow to certain images. Specifically:

Shadows add texture and depth to images that look ‘flat’.

In certain photos, it can be difficult to distinguish the objects in the photo from the background. A good example is white objects and clothing against a white background. Adding a drop shadow is the perfect solution to this, as it will clearly show your product or specific objects.

When editing large batches of photos using shadows in the same way, it can create a consistent look and feel for your images. For example, if you’re creating an online catalog, you can make your photos and online marketplace look more professional by making sure all your photos are edited the same way.

It seems strange that editing a photo will make it look more natural, but adding shadows can do just that. Shadow creation makes your images look more realistic when done correctly.

In certain situations, you may need to change the background of a photo but want to keep natural shadows. We can do it for you.
