Images, text and shapes may display a drop shadow. Shadow properties can be changed by accessing the Shadow attribute on the right-side editor options in the Layout, Page and Portrait Template editors.

To access the shadow attributes, select one or more frames on your canvas, then click on the second icon in the second line of options.

Turn on the shadow by clicking the Show Shadow box.

Change the color of the shadow by clicking on the color swatch. The color palette will appear - choose any color on the gamut, adjust the brightness, choose one of your style palette choices or use the eyedropper to select a color from the image.

Change the spread distance of the shadow by dragging the Offset slider. The further to the right it is dragged, the more the image appears to be floating off your page.

Change the fuzziness of your shadow by dragging on the Blur slider.  A crisp shadow effect makes your selected object appear to be double-layered. A diffuse shadow gives a glow effect.

Change the direction that your shadow is cast by dragging on the Angle slider. The shadow will rotate around the image.

Change the opacity level of the shadow by dragging on the Transparency slider. Drag the slider to the left to reduce the intensity of the shadow.
