A feaure I commonly use is "mask with shape" to create perfectly sized and positioned media for my designs.
However in my most common use case, applying a mask to a photo to place in my design, I no longer have the ability to use a shadow. The actual group "Mask Group" does not even feature the shadow option. The mask shape and photo file within the group do in fact retain the option to add a shadow however they do not do anything once applied.
My current work around is creating a basic shape the same dimensions behind it with a shadow, but this is has caused a little confusion on hand off.
Could we please add shadow capability to Mask Group? Please and Thank You!
I copied the mask group and pasted it as picture in powerpoint. Then copied it back and pasted it in the artboard. I applied the shadow to the image and it was perfect!
Anybody reading this can suggest what method you have used?
Yeah, technically you can't but here's something you can do...
That way, you have two objects, one with the shadow directly beneath and the one with the mask on top. Then group the objects so you can move freely.
I hope it helps
