P hotoshop shadow service is one of the most important photo editing services for product display. There are some products which look unusual & unattractive in their raw, naked, and wild format. For this, shadow creation in Photoshop for product display is very much important and necessary. Generally, reflection shadow, natural shadow, drop shadow or original shadow is applied to product photographs such as clothing items (shirt, T-shirt, lingerie, underwear, etc.), product items (book, table cloth, pen, mobile, wallet, flat items, simple ring, flat chain, ear ring, various jewelry, etc.).

While creating shadows on products for display, we perform couple of photo editing techniques, viz. remove background of the product (using clipping path or image masking), clean noises and distractions, enhance & retouch the photo, bring out the best color with color correction, and finally apply the best shadowing strategy to give the product a natural look and shape.

There are many product photographs where natural shadow of products are created by studio lighting, perspective etc. And some customers want to retain the shadow or give the best shadow and 3D look to their image. The Product Photo Shadowing Service can be used for various media including websites, e-commerce sites, product catalogs, brochures, digital media ads, printing media & magazine ads, etc.

These are perfect and exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much!!! As always, a job well done and executed with excellence!!!”

How to Create Natural Looking Shadows for
E-commerce Product

Natural shadows are the best option for your e-commerce product. It can help you achieve a more realistic look and feel of your product, especially if it's a real life object. To get an idea about the methods to create natural looking shadows, don’t leave without skimming through the segments below-

Create Rough Path on the Shadow Area

Rough Path is an effect that simulates the look of a selected object being rubbed against a rough surface. It is achieved by using a combination of Gaussian Blur and a custom brush with a varying opacity to create the illusion that the object is being dragged along the surface.

Rough Path works best when you have something such as a hand or some other type of object that you want to give an impression of being dragged over the surface.

Apply Brush Tool for Creating Shadow

With Brush tool, you can create a range of different effects, from simple line art to sophisticated shading and lighting effects. To use this tool, simply select it from the toolbar and then click and drag on the image. The longer you drag, the wider the brushstroke will be.

You can also vary the width of the brushstroke by holding down the Shift key while you drag. This will create a narrower brushstroke. If you want to create a more complex effect, you can use the Brush tool in combination with other tools, such as the Eraser tool or the Smudge tool.

    I had shot some peewee league football players and was going to select them all out – individually and make one big team collage… Color experts clipping service was awesome!! Saved me MANY hours of work – especially since that is not typically what I do and selecting out takes me longer than an expert :)
