Introducing Our Latest Addition: Elevate Your Images with Customizable Shadows

Discover Our Shadow Selection: Supported Shadow Types

Explore's trio of shadow options tailored for different foregrounds. Car Shadows, 3D Shadows, and Drop Shadows cater to diverse scenarios. You can also toggle shadow creation off or select Auto Detect to let the AI choose the perfect shadow for your image.

Let's shed some light on's three distinct shadow types:

  1. Car Shadows: Engineered with precision for foreground objects resembling cars, these shadows seamlessly complement the shape and size of automotive elements, delivering a realistic shadow effect.

  2. 3D Shadows: Mirroring the natural direction of light on your foreground image, these shadows add depth and realism by following the contours and features of the object. The 3D Shadow type is curated mostly for product photography of items with complex shapes or textures that benefit from enhanced depth perception. The 3D shadow can also be applied to images that feature people, animals, or graphics.

  3. Drop Shadows: Drop shadows create the illusion of depth by simulating the effect of a light source casting a shadow behind the foreground object. It provides a visual separation between the foreground object and the background, making it stand out more prominently. This is particularly useful when the object needs to be clearly distinguished from its surroundings, such as in product photography, portrait shots, images of animals, and graphics.

Tailored Flexibility at Your Fingertips

  • Turn On or Off the AI Shadow feature: If you prefer no shadow effect, you can easily keep the toggle off, as it is set by default to maintain the original appearance of your image.

  • Auto Detect: Let's intelligent system analyze the characteristics of your image and automatically apply the most suitable shadow type when you choose the Add Shadow option, ensuring optimal visual enhancement with minimal effort on your part.
