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..
