Shadows, they follow us around everywhere! So it’s no surprise working with shadows while editing pictures is important. They are an important ingredient to making your digital landscapes. In this blog post, we will be looking at how to work with shadows in the Urban Jungle Photo Editor.
Let’s start by adding an object to our landscape. This elephant will do nicely with this street cityscape. Now we can see, by adding the elephant, it comes with a shadow and reflection. The reflection customization we will touch on in a future blog.
Urban Jungle Photo Editor allows us to change the angle and the length of the shadow. We can do this by placing our finger on the shadow itself and dragging it. If we move our finger right or left, we are changing the shadow angle. By moving the finger up and down, we can change the shadow height.
Shadow angles and length allows us to determine the direction of the light, so by changing these we can set different scenes for different times of the day.
After we have decided on shadow angle and length, we can move towards setting its intensity. The shadow sliders allow us to set the intensity of the shadow. By moving the slider to the right, we are increasing how dark the shadow will look.
The SH Blur is the slider that controls Shadow Blur. This allows us to control how blur or sharp the shadow will be. By moving the slider to the right, we will be adding more blur to our shadow. You can adjust this setting.
Well done shadows give depth and intensity to an image. Urban Jungle Photo editor arms you with the easy-to-use tool to manage shadows in images.
