Select the Text Tool. Enter your text, then choose your desired font, style, and size and select OK. Use your mouse to position the text on your image.
Use the Blur filter to make the text more shadow-like. Select Image - Normal Filters - Blur from the menu bar.
You can apply the blur filter more than once. Just remember that in real life, the fuzzier your shadow, the weaker and further away the light source is from your object.
Select another foreground colour for the text. Use the Text Tool to re-apply a copy of the text. Position the text off to one side of the shadow to make it appear as though light is being cast from a specific direction. We positioned our text slightly above and to the left of the shadow, suggesting a light source at the top-left corner of the page.
Our final product looks pretty convincing!
