I would like to create some Mac OS X 10.7 Windows "simulations" in Photoshop.
I would like to learn about the window's shadow parameters, like size, spread and distance.
Could anybody help me with this???
For Mac OS X standard windows use drop shadow with folowing parameters: black #000000 color with opacity 60%, angle 90º, distance 25px, size 50px, spread 0px.
Actually it's more of a combination of two drop shadows. These settings work well for me in direct comparison to the original shadow:
The second drop shadow is for the fine darker line you notice around every window, especially when examining OS X window chrome on white background.
