Creates a White or Black Edge with Photo showing.2. Turns your Photo into an edge, leaving white in the middle. Good for DTP or layouts.3. Creates a White or Black Edge Mask that can be used in other Masking or Paint programs.4. Creates a transparent Edge so your Photo looks like a cutout. This mode only works if your background is transparent.5. Adds a Drop Shadow to your Mask. Same rules as Mode 4.There is also a Vertical & Horizontal offset supplied in case you need to move your New Edge around the canvas to center your photo. Many presets supplied to get you started.TIPS:When using a Drop Shadow (Mode 5), Radius Blur should be set to zero for best results.Special Thanks to:Ken for his Edges code.CF andM for his Making Shadows code.
