    I'm looking for some help figuring out how to make a picture frame that looks like a drop shadow on a white border.

    I know how to make a white border by enlarging canvas size, but how to get that shadow to give it the effect of looking like it is off of the background?

    Can someone lend a hand?

    I don't want to do it to any pic in particular, I was looking for the technique to create that effect ... on any photo. :)
