Related to the Snagit Editor shadow function. Is it possible for you to add an option to create a shadow on all four edges of an image instead of just one corner at a time?

Hello,
It is possible to add a shadow all the way around a capture.
The problem with adding the shadow to one corner at a time is it is time consuming and you don't get an even shadow in the end since the shadow doesn't cover an entire side.

So, I have made a video for you that shows you how I get a shadow to go evenly all the way around my capture. The nice thing about using this method is you can save different shadow looks to your Quick Styles gallery for use later on.

I hope this helps!

Hi Kelly

I should have thought of that comes to mind. Thank you very much, a superb workaround.
