Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Drop shadowed picture on tiled background

  1. #1

    Drop shadowed picture on tiled background


    Need a little bit of help here..
    I just cant seem to figure this out..

    I gave this picture a dropshadow in photoshop using the blending options.
    Deleted its background. It now has a transparent background.

    I have an html page with a tiled pattern background.

    How should i export the picture from photoshop so that when i put it in the page using <IMG SRC="">, the dropshadow would cast on the tiled background?

    Hope you get my point..
    Thanks in advance

    you will have to use save for web, gif, select transparency on.
    you will probably have to select a matte colour, other, then choose a colour closest to your BG.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    I already tried your approach before, the problem is, its hard to pick a color closest to my background because the BG is not a plain color.
    Maybe some other way? do you happen to know of any?

    I have no problem doing this in Flash coz all i do is export it as PNG and make the stage in flash transparent woindowless.

    There must be some other way around this..

    You'd need to use PNGs with support alpha transparence, but browser support is sketchy and can end up making things worse.

    Tried PNG but doesnt work well.
    All i get are black and white boxes.

    So, i guess theres no way to achieve this?..
    HOpe not..
