Watermark action drop shadow

Recommended Posts

I have finally downloaded your web action and am already kicking myself that I didn't do it sooner, I almost have it all set up to duplicate what I have already been doing except for one little pesky drop shadow.
I like the drop shadow so really would like to add it in (as pictured) but can't figure out the best way to do it... I was thinking crazy steps like duplicating the final layer, rasterize, selecting the image, inverting selection, deleting the boarder,  add the fx but then thought it won't work on both portrait & landscape if I did it that way annnd I don't think it was letting me add the effect that way anyway!

  I'm using a static and a variable watermark with a boarder, do you have any advise please?? :o)

On the variable watermark one, you need to add three steps.


Immediately after Unsharp Mask, you add a Smart Object conversion, and the drop shadow.  Then the canvas size step remains the same, but after that you add a flatten step.

Then the existing Convert to Smart Object happens after that, and the rest of the action runs as normal.

Perfect, thank you!!
Sorry about the gibberish... it was past my bedtime!

My modified action now adds the drop shadow, has a fixed logo (www.) at the bottom on the boarder and my variable logo.
I do have to hit enter to accept the drop shadow for each image, which is ok as I have to adjust each logo anyway but if you have a tip to cut that out too I'd be happy to I've it a go ;)

Thanks again!!
