Sad Adding drop shadows to images with backgrounds
I am at my wit's end! I have searched the internet for hours on how to add drop shadows to an image that already has a background (such as a forest, etc.). Can someone please help me???

Thank you!

RE: Adding drop shadows to images with backgrounds
Wow, this sounds complicated, I thought it would be easier. The photo I took does not have shadows now and it is of a person standing against a wall with nothing else around, so I want to add a drop shadow or a cast shadow to appear more normal. Do I need to cut the image out and paste in to a new layer and then do the drop shadow function? I need a tutorial if there is one please.

Thank you!
