Q&A

Q1: Creating filter effects seems difficult and tricky. Is there a method similar to PhotoShop's filter application where I can press a button and a drop shadow appears on my artwork?
A1: Filters can seem a little intimidating upon introduction, but their results far outweigh the steeper learning curve. Nonetheless, some SVG WYSIWYG editors, such as JASC WebDraw and Adobe Illustrator 10, offer the ability to select from pre-defined filter effects to apply to your artwork. You should still familiarize yourself with how each primitive works, as you may need to fine-tune the results of these programs' code.
Q2:SVG filter effects look awesome, but I don't have a clue how to achieve the results of filters such as an emboss or a multiply. Is there a resource to show different filter combinations and possibilities?
A2: While no definitive resource exists for such matters, you can visit this book's companion Web site, www.svgnow.com, for a series of examples showing different filter combinations. Your best bet may be to look at examples at a site such as this to get an idea of ways to recreate effects you've seen in PhotoShop and elsewhere.
