I've found how SnagIt will allow shadows but it doesn't let me do a shadow evenly around the entire capture. Am I missing something? I'm adding a screen shot to explain what I can do in SnagIT vs what i want to do but can currently only do in Word:
The size of the image and resolution will dictate parameters but that applies to any effect.
I used a 5 pixel black border with this image and a 14 pixel fade effect.
Theres a little unevenness from top to bottom and side to side.But not much.
I probably should have gone with the gray?
Anyway, one thing I noticed to stay clear of. Too much fade placed over anything with color shows through it the fade effect exceeds more than "X" number of pixels.
"Resolution of image will Dictate This Value"
Just an observation
Even stranger is why it's not available on all functions. It has actually been disabled. I wonder why?
I’m going to go off topic here, regarding spam
Paul and Rick were discussing some spam posted in this forum. That post was removed. One of the questions raised was why does the Adobe forums, not have the problems with spam that the Get Satisfaction forum does?
Well, that’s because the Adobe communities are closely moderated. I don’t submit questions to the Adobe forms very often. So if I don’t submit a question for say two months. And I submit a question at 6 AM on a Sunday morning. The question is not immediately posted. It’s accepted and I get a notice that the question is being moderated and it will not be posted until it is looked at. Usually within about 15 minutes the question gets posted.
If I’m active in the community and posting answers and asking questions. I don’t have any problem submitting questions and being moderated. When I first joined the community, all of my questions were moderated. I am now at a level 3 status in the community. There are 10 levels. So Level 3 is actually kind of low. You reach higher levels based on a point system. X amount of points for correct answers. Submitted questions so forth and so on.
Most of the people submitting answers on the Adobe forums are Adobe gurus. These people are so good I tend to not answer questions. I can throw in my two cents, but these gurus can throw in the whole dollar.
Anyway, that’s how the Adobe community keep ahead of spam. A fairly simple formula. They carefully moderate. The Get Satisfaction website clearly does not. On the weekends is a real free-for-all. We’ve all seen it many times.
