    I've been trying to figure out what the shadows on the left and right sides of a website are called as demonstrated on Host Dimes site: http://www.hostdime.com/

    What are they called so I can figure out how to do this?

    Thanks.

    Yes that. And i search drop shadows, but come up with results for images and the shadows being on the left and bottom portions instead of on the left and right.

    It's a drop shadow with 0 offset so that it comes out all directions.

    Photoshop. Double click layer to go to Layer Style, tick Drop Shadow, change Distance to "0".. fuck with opacity, spread, etc as desired.

    Sen, do you have the youtube link for your avatar? I was telling a coworker about that video, but couldn't find it again.

    Thanks, I'll try this. I never thought about cutting out whatever I didn't need. I always tried putting the shadow only on the left and right with two separate layers of gradients...

    Is that copy of CS4 "legit?" :cool:

    Yea, I'm just getting into the need for heavier usage. I've done simple stuff w/ it before though, so I KINDA know what I'm doing. It's a fucking awesome program though.

    Yeah get used to creating a big image just to get some pieces you need, then slicing them up and repeting them in DIVs etc..

    And yes, that's actually a legit copy :rofl: Work bought me CS4 web suite.

    Your CS4? Legit?

    If yours is legit, I had heaps of issues.. which is ironic, since I never had a single issues getting other copies working.. download, install, replace DLL, done. Then work went and forked out the cash for the whole suite for me, and I spent 1.5hrs on the phone to Adobe Support trying to get my key to work.
