To adjust the angle and height of the spotlight using the preview window:

1 Choose Filter > Render > Lighting Effects.

2 For Light Type, choose Spotlight.

3 Adjust the light:

• To move the light, drag the center circle.

• To increase the light angle, drag the handle to shorten the line. To decrease the light angle, drag to lengthen the line.

• To stretch the ellipse or rotate the light, drag one of the handles. Shift-drag to keep the angle constant and change only the size of the ellipse. Ctrl-drag (Windows) or Command-drag (Mac OS) to keep the size constant and change the angle or direction of the spotlight.

• To set the light focus (or spotlight intensity) and control how much of an ellipse is filled with light, drag the Intensity slider: full intensity (a value of 100) is brightest; normal intensity is about 50; negative intensity takes away light; and -100 intensity produces no light. Use the Focus slider to control how much of the ellipse is filled with light.
