Hello all,

I have enjoyed the effect that is used for the image containers on last fm. For an example go to http://last(dot)fm/music there are artists with images by them. If you look at the image it has a shadow on the bottom that makes each different corner look kinda like they are peeling off the page. Does anyone know of a tutorial or method to accomplish this shadow in Photoshop or any of the Adobe software(Illustrator, Fireworks, etc.)?

I was almost thinking that to accomplish it you would have to do the shadow for a single half and then again for the other half, whether you just mirrored it or copy and flipped it.

Anyways, any help or suggestions are appreciated!

Cheers

Sorry for broken link... It won't let me submit images or urls for some reason. :?

For reference, what he is talking about is the picture frame that goes around each thumb. I have attached it to this post, if anybody knows a solution to create that peeling effect.

In this tutorial the shadows are on the right side, but the principal is the same either way.
