Hello,

 

Whenever I place an 300 ppi image in illustrator and add a shadow, it changes the ppi to a lower one. 

 

How can I keep it at 300 with the shadow effect?

 

Thank you,

Never noticed it, but if you apply a dropshadow to a 300 ppi image, the resolution changes to 290 ppi.

But if you first group the image (with itself), it stays 300 ppi.
