A Treasure Hunt - Item 15 - Post Processing
Nigel’s Post-posers – Let's get adventurous! PP this month is Collages and Montages...
Take several of your favourite/best ever images and create a photo wall! Sounds easy? Well I'd like you, if you can, to make it look as real as possible as if you had taken a picture of a wall of framed photos :-) so perhaps not so easy.
Some of you more adventurous types and those familiar with the heavier editing suites will find this a little easier but those of you not so confident will find this a little harder... don't panic there are plenty of template based editing suites out there, I just really want you all to do something a little different from your usual monthly collection collages :-)
To Sum up; A realistic wall of photos would be the ideal if you are up for it. Something other than your usual composite of monthly images, if it is easier for you, depending on where your comfort zone is.
Ideas for the latter... I am thinking filmstrip or Polaroid framing, stacking photo's in a heart or butterfly shape just to get away from a standard Page collage! Use your imagination, it’s up to you! - Nodule – TH5/15/15

Nice gallery, Madame! Not sure about Photoshop, but there should be something in your 3D effects called "drop shadow." PaintShopPro lets you specify things like opacity, angle, width, color, etc., of the shadow. PS should have something similar.

A great looking wall, I wish i knew how to tell you how to work in Photoshop, but alas, I Use Gimp and it has a different interface.

Agree with all the above but reality has suffered by the lack of shadows :-)
drop shadows in PS are fine but the best way to control shadows is to make them yourself in layers... make a new layer for each image you add and make sure it is under the frame you want the shadow to appear under. select a soft edge brush and paint solid black around one or two edges, dial in some blur then tweak the opacity down until it looks/feels right for the overall lighting in the background.
this can be done in any suite that has layers.
