Solution

Choose the layer to which you wish to apply the drop shadow, and select Layer > Layer Style > Drop Shadow. Play with the opacity, angle, distance, and other settings in the Layer Style dialog box until you're happy with the effect.

Note that the value for Angle will affect all drop shadows in your document, so that the light source is consistent across your entire image.

TIP Dragging your Shadow

You can also click directly in the document window and drag the drop shadow around, as shown here. Make sure Drop Shadow is highlighted in the Layer Style dialog box, otherwise this won't work!
