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???

What version of Windows are you trying to simulate. –  Mort Dec 4 '12 at 20:07

Are you just asking about shadows? Or is there something more? –  bassplayer7 Dec 5 '12 at 0:49
    
I am not trying to simulate Windows, I am trying to simulate Mac OS shadows –  Victor Dec 5 '12 at 20:49
    
@bassplayer7 I am talking just about the shadows, I already have made the rest of the frame –  Victor Dec 5 '12 at 20:50
