Flgure 6.34

Adding more entourage

8. Apply a Drop Shadow layer style effect to the PlumTree layer. In the Layer Style dialog box, set a 0 px Distance and a 2 px Size to generate crisp shadows that are directly behind the tree.

9. In the Layers palette, right-click the Drop Shadow effect under the PlumTree layer to open a context menu; select Create Layer. A warning dialog box appears, informing you that some effects cannot be reproduced with layers; click OK to close the dialog box.

10. In the Layers palette, click the PlumTree's Drop Shadow that was just generated in the previous step. Change the opacity of this layer to 40% to dim the shadows a bit (see Figure 6.35).
