In Topic: Shadows in Photoshop Elements 15

Thank you, Scrapgarden, Super Scrapper! You had the answer I needed. Now I can be happy with PSE 15!  We had SBA ShadowsActions installed in actions and effects.  Neither worked well for me. What we needed was SBA Basic Shadows Styles like I've always had. Somehow my husband missed that when he set up PSE 15 and when I told him I needed it, he found the SBA Shadows Actions in my files and installed them.  

 

Now, I can get back to work.  YIPEE. Scrap garden you just gave me a good Christmas.

 

Thank you, Syndee. I'll have to try your styles sometime.

 

Thank God for Scrapgirls.

Is the one you have in the styles called a style.? Mine are called actions.  i was able to get the one in effects to make a shadow, but it is on a different layer and I can't figure out how to make the changes needed. Those that show direction of the light source, etc. If I ever could learn to do that, it would take many more steps than what I was able to do before.

I no longer know how to contact the designers. I had SBA_ shadows before, but I understand Syndee Nuckles has a set of shadows. Syndee, if you are out there, have you tried those shadows in PSE 15? Do they work? How do they work? I will definitely buy them if they will help me, because my old SBA shadows no longer work, now that I am using PSE 15. At least I don't know how to make them work right.  I really need some help.

I spoke too soon. I was able to put those shadows into effects as I have in the past, even though they are named actions. In the past, I would choose the shadow I wanted and click it on the layer. Then a fx symbol would pop up by it in the layers panel, I would right( I think) click that and change the direction, opacity and width of the shadow. It was perfect. Now I can only click it onto the layer from the effects panel or the actions panel. I can find no way to adjust those important factors. Now all my shadows are very elementary and can be on the exact wrong side of the image. I think I need a real expert, but don't know where to find one, except for here at Scrapgirls. This has always been THE PLACE TO COME for things like this. 
 

I hope I explained it well enough. I am really at a standstill; since I need good shadows on EVERY layout I do.

 

Merry Christmas!

Thank you, Carla. They are called actions, but they work in the effects folder, just like I had them in PSE 13. However, since they said actions, he had installed them in the actions. Why they were called actions, I don't know.

 

May I ask you what you use in their place now if you have not used them in a long time? Did you find something you like  better?
