Drop Shadow Effect in Pixelmator
It’s a mystery to me how Pixelmator doesn’t have a drop shadow effect by default. I found a post on a forum explaining how to get ti to work. Hope this helps.
Here is the step by step.
-Download this file:http://belightcommunity.free.fr/download_file.php?uid=49
-Locate the file in the Finder and unzip it by double-clicking on its icon.
-Select the file “BC_Shadow_1.5.qtz”
-Press ⌘C to copy it
-Now press ⇧⌘G, type “/Library/Compositions” and press enter
-Now press⌘V. You might be asked to enter your password
-Now quit Pixelmator and start it again.
-The shadow effect is now installed under ‘other’ in the effects browser
