You probably know that long shadows are new design trend and they look great. Producing that kind of shadow is very time consuming, especially when you have to make them for several elements or text. That’s why I prepared Long Shadow Maker – to save you lots of time and to help you produce very high quality, always perfect shadows!
This action works with rasterized layers, text and vectors. With several provided actions you will be able to produce large variety of shadows: from small 100 px shadows for web usage, to massive 1500 px shadows for print!
It’s very easy to use Long Shadow Maker, and it takes just seconds to create awesome shadows!
Available on Graphic River for only $4!
I hope you will like it!

@Damian Watracz Great action. Featured in Photoshoplr (http://madebyvadim.tumblr.com/post/54902626108/long-shadow-maker-4)
Thanks @Tstonefish and @Vadim Sherbakov ! :)
Are you f...... kidding me? Drop shadow maker for $4? This is a joke right? OMG
@Ales Nesetril Envato set prices, unfortunately we don't have any tools or rights to do so...
@Aurélien Foutoyet Why do you think so?
@Damian Watracz ANY TOOLS??? It's basic function in Photoshop dude! rofl..
@Damian Watracz I'm not blaming your work but the trend itself. It makes me smile. And yes, no offense but I think this kind of tool is useless. Why ? Because I think as designers we have to think by ourselves and not following each new dribbble trend like sheeps.
@Ales Nesetril any tools for setting prices for Graphic River products...
@Damian Watracz I still can't understand why do you want to sell this :D It's totally hilarious :D
@Ales Nesetril just try to do 10 long shadows for different objects, count your time and you will know why ;)
Maybe try to copy the layer style :D :D
@Damian Watracz Man, I've done this whole shot in 10 minutes.. http://dribbble.com/shots/1106241-Something-purple?list=users
The shadow took me about 2 minutes.. You're just following this drop shadow Dribbble trend like many other people and what's worse, you want to make money on it.. What I'm saying is don't waste your time with these stupid things and get focused on something what really matters..
@Ales Nesetril maybe you should try to do what really matters for you instead of judging what others do. Yep, making money is bad, let's work for free from that point, good idea mate! :) Have you ever thought that there are people who can't do that kind of shadows as quick as you
@Damian Watracz My shot with drop shadow icon was the 4th or maybe 3rd and after that everybody got crazy and applied it anywhere.. Show me another thing from my shots what does not make sense to you.. And yes, I'm selling some themes too :)
@Ales Nesetril I didn't say that any of your shots doesn't make sense to me. It's just interesting how you want to teach people to do something what really matters while you put time into those comments :)
This is just sad. Damian, give me a call when you release action for flat button, I'm desperately waiting for something like that.
One more thing - why even create action for one of the most overused and inpractical effects that will be quickly forgotten? What Ales sayed might seem rude, but I have to agree, what you're doing is just silly. Why not focus on something that's actually useful and stop defending this bullshit?
@Petr Široký Sure, I will give you a call, just leave your number below. I defend it because I like this action, it works well, it saves time and I'm happy to use it.
this shadow style is so useless...
Some really unbelievable comments..
Firstly, @Aurélien Foutoyet comes out of nowhere and says the design trend sucks and that people who like trends are simply sheep. Lets go back in history and delete all trends. Lets see where that gets you. Its called exploration and obviously some people will like things and others wont.
Then @Ales Nesetril drops the f bomb and explains that he feels its retarded to sell a time saving tool while wasting time posting his very comment. @Petr Široký comes in from left, expresses his sadness for this self-defeating tool while also saying to focus on something thats actually useful like providing useless comments.
Let me just say that, firstly - this guy has good intentions. Just because he is selling the tools, he still has a right to because he put the work in. Your opinion on whether or not his amount of work put in justified a price is pointless. No one is forcing you to buy it. Also, another point you guys completely missed and I thought was pretty obvious was that this is on graphic river. The majority of purchases on graphic river are not by professional designers, but rather by people who need things fast and pretty and who don't have years of design experience.
Summary: This isn't for you guys obviously so there's no need to voice your opinion. A simple, "Hey, im sure some people will find this useful! But not me, cause im awesome."
Btw, he has 32 purchases so far.
@Cameron Lloyd If that's unbeleivable to you, then I don't know what would you do if I sayed something really bad. Your post is basically this: If you have nothing good to say, don't say anything. I strongly disagree with such hypocrisy and if you're going to tell me what to do, then I'll tell you right away to get the hell out.
Do not lecture what is or isn't graphic river, it might come as surprise to you, but I'm paying customer on that site. What I see here isn't a trend, it's a simple and nice effect that has very limited practical usage. It's kinda like bokeh, pretty but useless. Unlike bokeh however, it has to remain almost the same all the time, which makes is extremely cheap. What Damien does (in my opinion) is just milking something that'll be soon forgotten. And I don't care how many sales he gets, that is not an argument. Quantity isn't quality.
You have an opinion, I have an opinion. Do not try to act like you're more than those that have negative opinion about this Long Shadow Maker, because the only thing you'll achieve with such behaviour is falling way, way lower. Summary: Just stop. There is enought ass kissing on dribbble already, in fact people like you sometimes make this place downright horrible. And please, no more stupid advices.
@Petr Široký I really don't know where to start or if I should bother.
Your post is basically this: If you have nothing good to say, don't say anything. - Yes, 100%. You gave no constructive criticism whatsoever instead calling it 'sad' and that he should do something else.
I think I can just let the Player's Handbook handle this one. Perhaps you should read it.
I will not post content that is: Inflammatory (e.g. name-calling, preaching, ranting, stirring up controversy, or venting frustrations)
Be constructive - I welcome constructive criticism of my work. When providing criticism to others, I'll be helpful, not mean.
What Damien does (in my opinion) is just milking something that'll be soon forgotten. - I know you have an opinion - theres about 5000 other dribbler's who also agree with you - but it's just the manner in which you voiced it. Imagine if every opinion on this site was as mean as yours. Would you want dribbble to be like that?
And I don't care how many sales he gets, that is not an argument. - Why wouldn't this be an argument? 67 people so far have obviously found it USEFUL and agreed to pay $4 for it??? Read the comments on the item (http://graphicriver.net/item/long-shadow-maker/discussion/5116780) - people are finding it useful.
Quantity isn't quality. - I think you meant diversity, not quality. This looks pretty quality to me..
The only thing you'll achieve with such behaviour is falling way, way lower. - ???
Summary: Just stop. There is enought ass kissing on dribbble already, in fact people like you sometimes make this place downright horrible. - Wait, so you would rather a site filled with mean and nonconstructive comments that offer nothing useful to the poster except voicing your opinion? I don't know this lad but I guess you could say I'm ass kissing the Player's Handbook.
I'm not trying to defend this trend (i really don't give a shit about it) or this guy - it's just about being constructive and positive. You could have worded your comments better and nicer as I said in my first post.
I just had quick view of your stuff on here and noticed you said this. "I'm not interested in personal insults. I try to give constructive criticism as well as I want it to others." on this shot (http://dribbble.com/shots/1034456-Wedding-e-commerce-WIP?list=users) where you seem to have another argument with others. You even say on your profile "I have a feeling that I don't fit here."
I think you fit here perfectly. Your a decent web designer who's posting decent work and asking for feedback. I think you just need to have a better and more positive attitude towards others. Good Luck mate.
