I have an idea

I have an idea for a tutorial.

My idea is to write a Photoshop tutorial, my first one, that would show how to apply realistic drop shadows to photos. Once you get desired result, you can slice your image up and, using CSS rules, apply creative shadows, hence 3d effect, to any image, Drupal block, Drupal box, etc. Similar tutorials are all over the web — well, not exactly, but there are quite a few of them. However, I had difficulty understanding the best of them. I clarified the whole process for myself, and have decided to dump it here. Lovely photo. Attached is my Photoshop CS2 file. The remaining step is to slice the image, of course. (If you examine the above image, you'll notice that I still have work to do to achieve truly realistic results. For example, the color of the 'white' outline is not realistic at the bottom.)

The tutorial is here.

neat drop-shadow effect. I'd noticed that before I discovered it was in fact the subject of your post.
