Many readers will appreciate that in most of the articles where I put an image, I add a kind of shadow to give it a more beautiful appearance, as in this one that starts this post.
I make the shadow with Gimp, which for me has nothing to envy Photoshop, at least for the things I need. How do I do it? It is very simple. First of all, let's see the tools we will use:
1- We open Gimp » File » Open »And we look for any image.
2- To give space to the shade, we will Image » Canvas Size and we increase the value of the proportion, leaving a considerable space as you can see in the image.
4- We create a new layer, white.
and we move it under the image layer.
5- Then we create another layer, but in this case transparent and it should be placed between the image layer, and the white layer.
10- Let's Filters » Blur » Gaussian Blur (Gaussian Blur) and in the radio options we put as value 30.0 in both (horizontal and vertical) or more, depending on the effect you want to achieve.
