Chapter 10. Shadows > Closing Thoughts

Closing Thoughts

If you feel funny taking so much time to perfect something that will never be noticed, you have two good reasons not to fret. First, shadows are every bit as important as light, but—strangely—the very best shadows are the ones that go undetected. Second, as with everything else in Photoshop, after you've test-driven them a few times, the techniques you learned in this chapter should take only a few minutes to perform. Isn't it worth a few minutes to get those subtle, flawless, ethereal shadows that no one will ever notice?

Note

On the accompanying CD, you'll find a PDF file that supplements this chapter. The file, called “extras.pdf,” contains information about creating black-only shadows.
