Using Paint Shop Pro: Creating a Drop Shadow

Here are the steps in creating a header graphic using paint Shop pro 3.11 for Windows 3.1. The steps are considerably easier in the Windows 95 version (version 4.x). There, with text still selected, just go to the Image menu, select Special effects, and then drop shadow. Decide on your angle, blur and opacity, and you have a drop shadow.
