    I use shadows that I got from a designer at another store! I get compliments on my shadows now! I would definitely suggest purchasing Wendy's shadows! Makes things so much easier and quicker! After reading this though, I may have to start tweaking colors and opacity and see what happens!

    I make my own every single time and they're always different, every single time! Sometimes I use linear burn, sometimes just a normal drop shadow, sometime close, sometime further away, different angles, etc. The only thing that's consistent is flatter elements that would normally be ON the paper have less shadow than a bigger button or something that would have more dimension, those have more shadow.

    I have changed a lot over the years on my drop shadows. It seems now I'm in the habit of lowering the opacity of the shadow whereas I never did that before.

    I use Wendy's too, as a starting point. They're gorgeous and often they are perfect on their own. Sometimes I like to tweak them a little depending on the element or the colour of the background paper.

    I use PSE so there's only so much I can do - Like I know you can warp in CS etc. To be honest I have no idea if I can change the color of a shadow in PSE or not!

    As far as settings go I never go above 60% opacity and less for certain things. I just think of the layout as a paper layout and think about what things would be chunkier and have a larger shadow. Papers don't have a thick shadow so I usually either use 10 and 8 or 12 and 10. I really dislike papers that "float" way upon a page because to me that just doesn't look "real." KWIM? Oh, and I usually use a 45 degree light angle - no idea why but that's just what I do
