Default Shadow Styles

I bought PSE 2020. Now I need to add my actions and styles. While I'm starting over, what shadow styles do you use? And where do you find them?

Following. I have an older set of styles but am in the market for another set.

Ohhh great question! Following too.
I've been using the same shadows for years and always think it's time for something new but don't know where to start.

Did you know Sweet Shoppe has an area called "Tutorials" in the upper right hand corner of your screen? If you scroll down you'll see "shadowing". There is a LOT of knowledge inside that single tab "tutorials".

I thought there were free shadow styles, but I can't remember who would have had them for free.

At a quick glance, I don't see any shadow styles here in the store. Fiddle-Dee-Dee has shadows and so does Mommyish, but those are paid and I'm not sure if they are old or current styles.

I wish I could direct you somewhere that has free shadows for you but I can't find anything in my google searches

Hi -

At least one of the sets of shadow styles I have are Krystal Hartley's Lighten Up Shadow Styles. This is where she has a download link for them.

http://scraphappinessinside.blogspot...s-shadows.html

The ones I use most are Trish Shadow Styles, but I can't find the source. I don't think I paid for them (i.e. - they were a free download within the last couple of years), but when I google search I can't find them. Maybe someone else knows?

I have 2 sets from Megs that she gave away as freebies in like 08, and 2010. I think one of the might still be on her blog. Flergalicious.com You could search her site and see if you can find them. I own numerous sets and I always, always go back to Meg's. It's only 3 different shadows, but my shadowing is something I always get compliments on in my layouts.

I bought PSE 2020, too, Cindi! I won't be able to use it until after Christmas though. You'll have to let me know what you learn
I use several styles. One is a really old one from a retired designer. The other is from a designer at another store.
Thanks everyone! I'm going to give Flergs shadows a try when I'm home!!

I think all of mine were paid. Jenn used to have some. I use One Little Bird and Sahlin Studios' shadows.

I had free shadow stiles from fiddledeedee but don't have the file to reload. I bought new ones from another designer today that are not loading. Sigh.

any chance you can save the styles from your old program and import in to the new program?

If you still have the old version of the program installed, you can copy and paste the installed styles, custom shapes, brushes, actions, etc. from the program files area. Copying the whole preset folder is one of the things I do to backup files.
I've had several older things I use regularly that I don't have the original file, or I just can't find it easily because it is on an old EHD, that I have gone to the backup I made to install again. Check our your program file folder. Mine is located at:
Windows (C: ) > Program Files > Adobe > Photoshop Elements 15 > Presets
If you have more than one version installed, then it will be in its own folder under the Adobe folder. I used to have PSE13 on this computer and finally uninstalled it, but that process evidently left a couple of the preset folders on the computer - not all of them, just a couple - but they do seem to have certain things I added myself still in them.

Oh wow, I didn't know that! Thank you! So I copy the presets in the old version and paste them in the new presets folder?

Yes! It really is that simple. When you open the new version up again all of the presets you copied over will be there if you got them in the correct place.
Edited to add: actions are the exception to this. You will most likely have to 'install' them again for them to show up in the actions palette box I've found. The old version will still have the .atn file in the folder, but they don't install themselves - not really sure why. Brushes, custom shapes and layer styles should be in their respective places on opening.
Hope you can retrieve your shadow style set!
