Stack Info

Overview

Shady will apply a real drop shadow to any image you place inside. If you use a png image with transparent areas, then the drop shadow will indeed follow the contours of your image.

You can adjust all aspects of the shadow size, direction, blur, and intensity, to taste.

Shady works with the new Site Image type, and can be chosen as an option in the stacks settings.

Edit mode responds appropriately when applying shadow, never clipping regardless of shadow direction or length, and is 100% CSS driven, there is no javascript overhead in this stack.
