Could someone please help me out with this. I see so many siggies with what looks like a floor or ground. I have the most trouble with this part. It seems like my stuff is floating in air or something..LOL.

Are you referring to scene siggies for the most part?

I have a few kits that I bought where they would have a really nice paper with a background on it - like, the top half of the paper is a sky and then the bottom is grass or a field, so kind of like a landscape view. I use those a lot and mask them to creare edges that blend into the white background. Also some Christmas kits I saw had papers that would have a brick wall at the top and a wooden floor at the bottom for example.

Also, some kits I have would have a snow element that loosk like it's laying on the ground, or some mud element or whatever to use at the bottom of the sig. Oh, and I think adding perspective shadow as opposed to a regular shadow also adds depth and makes it look like it's standing vs. floating.

Thanks! I have got a few kits recently with floors and I was sooooo excited! LOL I use PSP so I don't know exactly how to skew in that program, but I can resize persepectively and it looks like it's floor sometimes. I am trying...LOL

Julia,
How do you do perspective shadows?

Can someone pleeeeeease tell me where to install this in Photoshop? I had it in PSP but I had the trial version... I've been looking for this download and now I can't figure out where to install it in PSE. I put it in my photo effects folder but that's not right...

Okay, I found my plug-ins folder for PSE but there are like 8 subfolders... so which one does it go in???

Or do I just make an "eyecandy" folder in the plugins folder??
