Drop Shadows + Page Curls in Photoshop

In a previous Photoshop tutorial, I showed you how to create a realistic frame and matte, using gradients and drop shadows. In this tutorial, we’re going to continue with drop shadows, only this time, I’ll show you how to create a stylized drop shadow that gives the illusion that the corners of your photos are starting to curl up and away from the background. It’s a simple technique that can really help your photos pop off the page…pun intended.
