Hi, I'm trying to do a white drop shadow. or really a light gray color one. and the lighter i try to go on the shadow the more it disapears no matter the opasity. I have it set at 100% in the style settings and as well as in the actual layer opasity slider bar. I don't know what the problem is. It's like the opasity is stuck and not working in the layer style effects. can someone help? I have elements 2022 thank you! I also am on a PC.

this is what I have done ultamitly. I got a blur in a vibrant color and lined up a duplicate layer in white with a gaus blur added to it. It's annoying to have to do this but it's the only way to get it to what I wanted at this point. I even did a merge layer on the text so its locked together. I don't know why the drop shadow when it's not fuzzy/blurred its not always a solid color the lighter I go with the shade/color. I know there has to be some thing I'm doing wrong that's causing the issue. or something I'm not doing.
