Ah, I did not pay enough attention, thank you dinasset for pointing it out. I was just duplicating and moving the actual tomatoes without paying attention to shadows. I just finished another hopefully with better shadow placement.
Sorry, still wrong: do what I suggested to you in my previous message, reality should be the master.
Yes that's true, still have much to learn, I appreciate your suggestions and helpful advice, I welcome the chance to learn from my mistakes. That is how we improve so again thank you dinasset. I just saw the photo of the peaches, I understand more what you are saying now, thank you.
Shadows, shadows, I'm going through a learning curve with them. You may wish to exclude shadows from the tutorial and make a drop shadow, remember you can move/manipulate the final shadow to suit your target. Also if you wish you could manipulate a selection, fill, play with opacity. It's all part of the fun.
Thank you RJKD for the tips. I've only used drop shadows, but I've never thought to move and play with them. I've seen many tutorials saying change the fill but I am at loss as to what exactly this means or where to adjust this. Any point in the right direction to help me understand this would be appreciated, thanks again for the helpful advice!
