Lesson 20. Formatting Objects > Adding a Shadow or a 3D Effect

Adding a Shadow or a 3D Effect

A shadow gives some depth to an object. Applying a 3D effect to an object does much the same thing, as you can see in Figure 20.3. The main difference is that a shadow just adds shading behind a two-dimensional object, while a 3D effect attempts to make the object appear fully three dimensional. Shadows work with all objects, but 3D effects work only with drawn artwork.

Figure 20.3. Shadows and 3D effects can keep your artwork from looking flat and boring.
