Annotated Summary.jpg

This is an annotated summary of the completed workflow.

We resample the original to known pixel dimensions, sharpen the result (when downsampling).

We apply a decorative border, then a border to capture the dropped shadow.

The drop shadow is applied with a brightness transform, which uses a mask that applies the shadow.

The final result is saved, and we're done.

other sizes: small medium original
