IMPORTANT TIPS FOR REALISTIC RESULTS
1-Build your composition @ 72 DPI using high-resolution PNG always using smart objects. You are not limited to 72 DPI, it’s only part of the building process, please keep on reading.
If you are building a composition @ 300 DPI you’ll experience bad shadow effects, this due to a limitation of pixel size with LayerFx at higher resolution with Adobe Photoshop. See the shadow size chart 72 DPI to help you choose the right shadow depending on your PNG pixel ratio.
Once you’re satisfied with your composition @ 72 DPI, change the images size to 300 DPI or other resolution needed. Your shadows and your smart objects now will be resized and match the look at the new resolution you selected. You can always switch back from 300 DPI to 72 DPI to add or modify your shadows @ 72 DPI, which is the recommended way to get realistic results every time.
2- You can experience some memory problem with Photoshop when you add too many shadows. Right click on ‘FX,’ located on a layer and choose, ‘ hide all effects.’ This will speed up the computer while you finish to move and scale your PNG images. When you are done, simply right click on the ‘FX’ and choose ‘show all effects.’
3- Make sure to use the shadows only with classic light, natural light or sunshine light PNG, according to the light you have chosen.
If you’re not sure of the lighting-style check the last 2 digits of any PSD or PNG files from Layer-Lab.
_LC = Classic light
_LN = Natural light
_LS = Sunlight
