The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Three: Press Y to get the History Brush tool (it's right above the Gradient tool in the Toolbox). In the Options Bar, click on the thumbnail to the right of the word "Brush," and choose a medium-sized, soft-edged brush from the Brush Picker. Now, start painting along the bottom edge of your product where the original shadow used to be. The trick is to paint mostly over your product and have just about a third of the brush extending outside your product. So, as you paint, the original shadow will be painted in.
