I'd like to create a bit of subtle depth to the four major images on this page:

http://cellocelli.com/hometest.htm

I added the gray border and have experimented with the edge thickness and soft/hardness but can't seem to get any depth. How would I create a very subtle drop shadow type effect on the border of say this image?

Thanks!

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you're after, but look at these 2 images.
The first one adds a shadow inside the border you have on the image, while the second one blurs the outer regions of the image a little .

btw: did you check my message (PM) yet? top right of this window should say if you have messages or not.

copyright infriction!

call the internet police

publishing notation without paying the music industry 50 billion pounds is an offence

Yep, I added the drop shadow filter to the rectangle. I left it in png format so you could see it in Fireworks.

yes

be very careful when posting using material that could be deemed as protected or copyrighted.

My post in this thread was a light hearted attempt at humour but the copyright police can jump on you for the slightest innocent infringement of the law.

A friend of mine was warned about 10 year ago when it was still a grey area. He had a midi file playing of a comedy tune on his cartoon strip site. He basically received a proforma to fill out regarding how many times the file was downloaded in a month in order for the owner of the tune to calculate a cost of royalties. He replaced it with a classical midi tune and he heard no more about it. He was lucky

Funny enough, in the U.S. where copyright laws are pretty strong, using excerpts are allowed.
