How to Add a Drop Shadow to PNG Image?

Razet · · 5500 Views

Shadows on the image always give it a new look and make it eye-catching.

The CSS box-shadow property permits adding shadows on images. However, we can't utilize it with png images as it will put a square image shadow.

If you need to make a drop shadow for the png image, the most choice decision is the filter property, that can help you with taking care of styling problems.

.drop-shadow {
  filter: drop-shadow(2px 4px 8px hsla(0deg, 0%, 0%, 0.5))
